What is your policy on sustainability?

Our designs are made to last a life time, and be passed on to future generations. We create beautifully crafted pieces, which will forever stay an essential part of your wardrobe. Longevity plays a key role in our BVB mantra. Our carefully selected sheepskins and leathers are all a by-product from the meat industry, and would otherwise go to landfill. We consciously make sure all of our off cuts are kept in stock, so that we can use them for future projects, and minimise waste. All of our products are made in England, this is of great importance to us. As we are a heritage brand, and we believe in working closely with our manufacturers to produce an exquisite product. In line with being mindful of our materials, we have also chosen to make sure we have recycled packaging. This is in line with our values of longevity. As our recyclable packaging can be re-purposed time and time again.

Do you offer discounts?

We do not currently offer any discounts, but keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media as this is where we will announce any discounts. (Instagram). We also offer gift cards on our online shop, in which the receipient will be given a unique code to shop online with.

How do I clean and maintain my sheepskin jacket?

We recommend seeking the help of a specialist leather and sheepskin dry cleaner. If your sheepskin coat ever becomes significantly wet, be sure always that you dry the coat slowly, without placing it in direct heat. You must also make sure you hang your jacket on an appropriate coat hanger (ie. shaped and wide). If caught in a shower ensure the jacket or coat is shaken to lift off water sitting on the surface. Cared for properly our sheepskin jackets will last a lifetime.
