St. Pancras Station - 'Going North for the Holidays from St Pancras Station, Midland Railway'. Unnamed artist - circa 1908.
This beautiful pocket square has been created in collaboration with St Pancras International to mark the 150th anniversary of the station. St Pancras originally opened in 1868 and in the time since the station has gone through near demolition, decay and restoration. The fact the station is still here 150 years later is something we think must be celebrated! A beautiful image of the station, the colour blends and border mean it lends itself perfectly to a navy jacket.

St Pancras Station was built by the Midland Railway Company (MRC) to connect London with some of England’s major cities. It was intended to make a grand statement about the company with a display of physical magnificence. The roof is made up of a series of wrought iron lattice arches resulting in a space 98ft high, 245ft wide and 689ft long. It was the largest single spanned roof in the world when fist built and its design was copied across the world, including at Grand Central Station in New York. The roof trusses form a pointed arch which is complemented beautifully by the architecture of the hotel.
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our pocket squares are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
The art of hand rolling pocket squares is a unique craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each scarf its own unique character, finish and feel. To create the finest rolled hems, the edge of the silk or cotton pocket square must be softy turned over with handheld needle and then small stitches are inserted approximately one half to one centimetre apart around the edge, creating a supple yet prominent border. It’s absolutely the best way to finish a scarf for a variety of reasons but the key ones are for both visual effect and structure.
Rolling by hand is the only way to get a really nice clean plump finish on the edge and this gives a really nice depth to the edges. It’s a more expensive process than machine rolling but by using a machine you’re often left with a flat edge and you don’t get the same luxurious feel. On top of this, the rolled edges add a lot more structure to your pocket square.
