Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field are Merchant & Mills. They produce a range of cardboard patterns and ready-to-make kits and also source superb notions that they sell in stark, utilitarian packaging, standing in profound contrast to the pretty, flowery image of the average haberdasher. Carolyn has a degree in fashion and has lived and worked in Italy and New York. Roderick is an established photographer and writer with works in the National Portrait Gallery. Merchant & Mills products are stocked by the Design Museum, Liberty, the Victoria and Albert Museum and Selvedge as well as independent retailers all over the UK and selected outlets in France, Japan and the US.
