Bailey Laine Nominated for Gift of the Year 2017 Company Celebrates First Birthday and Industry Recognition


Saddleworth home furnishings and apparel brand, Bailey Laine, has been nominated for the Giftware Association’s Gift of the Year 2017. The brand’s lambswool throws and decorative cushions are nominated in the Made in UK category. The news comes as the Delph-based business celebrates its first year of trading and a series of notable listings in some of the UK’s best independent home furnishing stores.


Company founder, Katie Mallalieu launched the brand in July 2015 with a range of luxury wool cushions and has developed the range to include lampshades, throws and women’s capes made from the finest wool. A keen advocate of supporting women in business, SMEs and British manufacturing, Katie has been recognised by her peers having received Jacqueline Gold CBE’s Woman of the Week (#WOW Award) in August 2015. Katie says: “Following my departure from teaching, I worked for my family’s wool manufacturing business (Mallalieus of Delph). After some months, I realised I wanted to combine Mallalieus’ wool manufacturing expertise and experience with my creative side and Bailey Laine was born. “Our first year of trading has been hard work but reaped many rewards. We’ve been successful in expanding our product lines and have secured listings in independent stores across the country. “All of our products are manufactured in the UK at Mallalieus of Delph and are made using their


British Woollen fabrics. I’m very proud to be celebrating our first year as a truly British luxury home furnishings brand and the Gift of the Year nomination tops it all off.”


The Gift of the Year awards are organised by the Giftware Association which has been supporting suppliers and retailers in the gift and home industry since 1947. The awards recognise new and innovative products across 22 categories with the final winners announced on 5 February 2017.


Katie goes on to say: “Feedback from retail stores and customers has been so positive that we’ll be launching new designs in our popular lambswool throws in 2017. We’re looking forward to growing; further developing our range and continuing to be a part of promoting the British textile industry.”
