Hello, We're Firehorse
Voted one of the top British silk scarf brands and featured in national media, Firehorse is a luxury accessories brand showcasing exceptional design and craftsmanship. The brand is a celebration of modern artisanal heritage with our signature collection of limited edition scarves being designed and hand-made in England.
Whilst our origins lie in silk scarves, today we offer a growing collection of fine accessories collaborating with some of the best designers and artisan partners in Britain and beyond.
Our Track Record
Last year we were delighted to design Official Merchandise for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games during which our luxury silk scarves were presented to King Charles and Queen Camilla. Recently Firehorse has been invited to design bespoke collections for three more prestigious world-class events – the 2023 Solheim Cup in Andalucía, the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome and for Team GB at the Paris 2024 Olympics. A host of exciting bespoke corporate and private commissions is also in the pipeline.
Where We Started
Our signature silk scarf collection offers an authentically luxurious product made of the finest silk, a fabric which has been treasured for centuries for its delicate sheen and sensuous draping quality. Firehorse scarves are hand-made in Macclesfield in the UK which has a silk heritage spanning four centuries. Local limestone infused waters are used to gently wash the silk, enhancing its beautiful lustre. Limited edition designs are then printed onto the fabric before careful finishing by a team of artisans. The edges are softly rolled and finally hundreds of fine stiches are applied by hand to provide the scarves with elegant structure and drape. The company treats each individual Firehorse scarf as a true work of art, working closely with its designers and full creative team to ensure each product is perfect for both today and the future. Regarded both as a modern day accessory and an heirloom to be passed lovingly from generation to generation, Firehorse products are truly exquisite investment pieces - all of which are very popular for corporate and personal gifting given their quality and fusion of contemporary design and classic chic.
Our Growing Collection
Building on the success of our silk scarf collection, we now offer a wide range of fashion accessories also including silk pocket squares, ties, bow ties, ribbons and silk hair accessories. We also offer scarf rings and luxury silk-covered and flexi-cover notebooks. However, our capability stretches much further, so please do get in touch to discuss your specific requirements for beautifully created bespoke and branded products.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Firehorse is proud to be a sustainable and ethical brand that contributes towards the move away from fast fashion. Our scarves are made to last a lifetime and beyond, exemplifying best practice in sustainable ‘slow fashion’. We use a number of techniques and have made a number of decisions that mean that our customers can be proud of the pieces they are investing in. Echoing the philosophy of the late iconic designer and eco-fashion pioneer Vivienne Westwood, famous for her wise words ‘Choose well. Make it Last’, we hope to do our bit to encourage a kinder fashion industry. Finally, we support emerging young designers by involving them in our design development process, thus contributing to the development of their practices and local creative economy.
Finella Devitt founded the brand in 2018 alongside her arts consultancy business Iridescence, established in 2002. With a family background in fine art, craft and textiles including Irish linen damask, Finella developed a love of quality and a desire to showcase the high level of design, creativity and craftsmanship that the UK is famous for. Roland Walton, a former colleague of Finella's from the luxury British paper manufacturing sector, joined the team in 2020. As co-owners of the company, Finella and Roland are embarking on an exciting journey of growth with the brand; one where pioneering sustainable luxury is fusing with a myriad of creative collaborations.
