Knots & Socks - Putney Exchange

Knots & Socks has been open in the Putney Exchange for a few weeks now, and it's been great to catch up with lots of customers that have visited our pop-ups in the past. We've been far busier than we expected, so 'Thank You' for the warm welcome back!

You can get our full range of Reef Knots products in the shop, and we're still open for business as usual down in Leadenhall Market. 

You can find us on the Ground Floor between GAP and Waitrose.

We are officially an 'Award Winning' retailer!

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to go down to the British Museum and attend the BCSC Opal Awards ceremony, which celebrate excellence shopping centre retail. 

Knots & Socks (the Putney popup version) was nominated in the PopUp Shop/Temporary Retail category having been put forward for the award by Appear Here. It was a tough category including large established brands such as BMW.

And you'll never guess what happened...

Anyone for Cocktails? Old Friends Return

Due to popular demand, we've brought back one of the first silk ties we ever made. We're always trying to bring out new designs, but sometimes customers just let you know that they're not done with something yet!

These will therefore be sticking around for now and the tie is available in three colours. Cheers!

Reef Knots silk ties stand

Winter is Coming!

We may have only just said goodbye to our summer shorts, but we're busy frantically preparing for Christmas. Stay tuned for news on how we're going to make this our largest winter season yet with new silk ties, new products, the return of our Putney pop-up shop (but bigger and better!) and much more!

For those popping into see us, here is a look at some of the new bags that our customers will be walking away from some of our events with!

Spotted: House & Garden - October Issue

Did anyone spot us in House & Garden this month? Our handmade luxury silk ties are highlighted as one of the top products at this year's Spirit of Christmas event at Olympia.

The event runs from the 2nd-8th November (7 days this year!) and you can find REEF KNOTS silk ties at the same spot as last year (stand H6 - right at the front of the hall). 

New tie designs coming soon!

We'll soon be releasing some of our new silk tie designs onto the website as well as the return of some old favourites. These include our beautiful crab design silk ties, which we think are going to be 'snapped up' this Christmas.

If you can't wait until the ties are online, they're already available in-store at our shop Knots & Socks, 40 Leadenhall Market, City of London, EC3V 1LT.

Here's a little sneak peek:

Sir Richard Branson supports REEF KNOTS and BLUE

It was great to see Sir Richard Branson supporting a young British company like REEF KNOTS, and the important work of the Blue Marine Foundation.

Despite describing himself as a 'tie-loathing adventurer', Sir Richard was happy to wear our silk tie to help highlight the problem of over-fishing in our oceans. However, it would appear that our beautiful silk tie fell foul of his scissors soon after!

Help us crowdfund Knots & Socks!

We've started a campaign to try and crowdfund our first permanent shop, Knots & Socks. It's a partnership with Morrow's Outfitters and is a long-term site for our previous pop-up format. The following video tells you all about it or you can CLICK HERE to visit the campaign page:

As the video mentions, we sell some of the finest silk ties and socks available anywhere, and we'd love to make our two little brands, two of the big brands of the future. With your help, we can make a major step in that direction. 

The shop is based in the historic Leadenhall Market, in the heart of the City of London. We hope to open the doors in April 2015 and we will keep you all updated with news as it happens.
