Drake's was founded by Michael Drake in 1977 in London's East End, a stone's throw away from London's silk weaving roots in Spitalfields and their current home on Haberdasher Street. With a collection of 'Scarves, Shawls & Plaids' the company found a loyal following amongst both high fashion boutiques and conservative tailoring houses in the most discerning markets of Paris, Milan and Tokyo. Handmade ties and pocket squares soon followed.
Their commitment to the finest raw materials and authentic processes remains at the heart of everything they do. As well as partnering with the world's greatest mills and makers, this philosophy is best illustrated through their own factories in London and Somerset where many of their products are still made today.
