THE STORY ….OR WOT! LTD (ESTABLISHED 2006)
Once upon another time (not January 2010)
A Five Star Cruise Liner from England sinks
All passengers rescued apart from ONE
Luggage and the ONE marooned on an Island
Castaway Couture is borne
The finest components, skills and craft that England can muster
There are still people alive (just) that remember England as the workshop of the World! From corsets to a Silver Condiment Train for the Maharaja of Jaipur, all had to wait for their turn to be served.
We were busy making things: inventing, tweaking, fumbling, making fools of ourselves, the World’s eccentrics – in garages and small workshops all over this green and pleasant land. To supply the Kings and Queens of this Country and achieve the Royal Warrant was a licence to export products to every part of the globe…
Please don’t think I’m being overtly jingoistic – 1 know we made some tragic mistakes – we provided a brand of political tyranny that will echo for a long time – but we did make things – ten years ago a good a machinist could make (on piece work) £12 an hour – when your husband has lost his job down the pit or in the car industry that sort of money carries a lot of hope. (difficult to sustain as the equivalent wage in China was two pounds eighty a week!).
Our industrial inheritance is being squandered, with the consequence that soon there won’t be anyone left that remembers how it works.
OR WOT! Is hopefully about providing a heritage –
