The Charlie Borrow Workshop was founded in 2013. Situated in the heart of east London between the idyllic Boundary Estate and Columbia Road, an area with a rich history of small scale manufacturing business’. Charlie Borrow products are designed and made from start to finish in the shop from the finest raw materials. Each component is expertly produced in a traditional manner by craftsmen in and around the British Isles.
You will not find ultra modern machinery to speed up production, nor witness manufacturing methods to cut corners or costs. The products made are made to last and age in a beautiful and natural way. Some may call them and the process “old fashioned” due to the labour intensive techniques and the heavy materials, however it is this that gives them their durability and makes them life long companions.
By using highly durable material and construction techniques to create the products, we are very confident and stand by every item that leaves the workshop. This of course means that each is offered with a life time of repairs. Nothing lasts forever but with the right maintenance and care they’re expected to last for a number of years and serve you well. If a repair is needed get in touch and it can be booked in. Items are subject to wear and tear and will not be replaced if worn through however where possible materials will be salvaged, patches will be added to reinforce areas of weakness and suitable replacements to keep the authentic aged appearance of the product.
