The English Shipmate

The English Shipmate

Hello Sailor!

Let's create something together that'll be part of a special memory, to be thumbed in the pocket, worn with delight... after all, life is about the crew you sail with; our voyages of the heart.

We're old romantics here, so if you need your item quickly or would like some advice, please contact us via the "Ask seller a question" button.

We offer a very personal service - each item is made from scratch - a labour of love from raw material, to tying the blue ribbon around our British-made gift box.

The English Shipmate, based near Bath, was founded by silversmith and sailor, Victoria Indigo Harwood. It's inspired by sailing Meridian, a friend's Yawl, see pic above.

Our land crew include: Dan on copper planishing; Cherry Nana on post and tea duty; small son Kit on big ideas for "What to do next..." and, of course, First Mate Philip for the inspiration. Sometimes thumbs get bashed, then Gin is required!

Shipshape values: We are delighted to have been commissioned by the RNLI. We carefully source as many materials as possible from the British Isles and keep chemical and power use to a minimum.
