Fox & Chave was established in 1991 to supply silk ties to the British gift market. Since then, the company has expanded significantly, creating a large and beautiful collection of nature and fine-art inspired silk accessories for men and women. The range includes ties, bow ties, pocket squares, scarves, wraps, shawls and clutch bags. We add to the designs annually, covering a huge number of artists and decorative styles. Many designs are sold under license to art collections, thereby raising important funds for museums and galleries, and we support contemporary artists in the same way. A third of our business is bespoke work for exhibitions and iconic works within collections.

 

in 2013, the company acquired the Sonia Spencer cufflink business and now offers cufflinks, pendants and bangles to complement its silk range.

 

Fox & Chave mainly supplies heritage gift shops, which include major museums and art galleries, historical sites, castles, palaces, stately homes, racecourses, theatre and music venues plus high-end country clothing stores, high street gift shops, menswear and accessory businesses. We also work with gift websites and mail order companies. Our market includes the UK, USA, Australia and Europe.

 

We welcome enquiries from all sources, for specific designs, new concepts, licenses and bespoke projects.
