Bearland House is an elegant 18th Century townhouse in the centre of historic Gloucester and home to the Emma Willis Factory. Here their luxury shirts, boxer shorts, pyjamas, dressing gowns and walking socks are made using traditional methods of cutting and sewing, making to the highest standards.

Cutting by hand, patterns are matched at the seams and sewn 18 stitches to the inch using single needle stitching for the neatest, strongest seams. Patterns are all carefully matched at the seams, collars hand trimmed before turning to ensure sharp, flat points, handmade gussets crafted, and each garment finished with real Mother of Pearl buttons.

Our highly skilled cutters and machinists take great pride in their work and ending, pressing, folding and packing are carried out with care and attention.

In 2019 His Majesty, King Charles III visited Bearland House to meet our skilled team, thank them for the shirts they have made and to admire their craftsmanship.

Cutters Samantha, Kelly and Andrew, machinists, Kath, Chloe, Jacquie, Karen, Lucie, Lyn, Georgina, Becky, Maureen, Lizzie, and Georgia are highly skilled and take great pride in their work.  Ending, pressing, folding and packing are carried out with care and attention by Joanna and Casey.
Our Bearland House showroom is open to customers by appointments and we have private parking.  Emma and cutters Samantha and Kelly look forward to welcoming you for bespoke or ready to wear shirts, boxer shorts, dressing gowns or pyjamas and showing you our extensive collection of luxury Swiss cottons and linens to choose from as well as a tour of the cutting and sewing rooms.
