Introducing Our Comfort Blanket

As a brand & business with a loyal and ever-growing community, we feel a responsibility to reach out and help others during this difficult time. For some, you may already be self-isolating & for others, you may be feeling overwhelmed and anxious about the sudden and drastic changes happening in the world. To help you during this time, we wanted to create a positive space to share ideas and tips, covering everything from music to books, from meditation to nature. Here in the Mill, we always try to look on the bright side and take a positive approach to life.

Today, we launch ‘Our Comfort Blanket’, an online space filled with positive tips and advice on staying healthy and positive during this difficult time. This is a space for us and you, we encourage you to reach out to us and tell us what you do to stay positive and healthy so that we can share with our wider BEGG & CO community.

We hope, just like with our physical blankets, that you feel the warmth from ‘Our Comfort Blanket’.

With love,


Book Club

What we are reading

“Threads of Life is a book of stories, the stories of people across cultures and centuries who have used sewing to make their voices heard: documenting their history, declaring allegiance, asserting their identity and mourning their dead.  From WW2 prisoners of war to Mary, Queen of Scots; from WWI disabled soldiers to peace campaigners the book explores the surprising, often moving, purpose of peoples’ needlework.” - Clare Hunter, Author.

For Book Club this month, we spoke with author Clare Hunter about the release of her book, what inspires her, Mary Queen of Scots, and of course, how accessories feature in her wardrobe.
