With over 20,000 frames knitting at one point, Leicester was the most important centre of the hosiery trade from the beginning of the 1800's, for well over 100 years. The city even formed a 'Sock branch union' for fairer wages, since many of the Framework knitters still did the majority of work from home.
The Saint Saviours Terra cloth lined Skater Socks. Made right here in the heart of Leicester, only a stones throw away from Saint Saviours HQ (which, coincidently is an old Knitters cottage) by a family run business that has been spinning yarn since 1932.
