Product Details
Established in 1760, William Whiteley & Sons are the oldest scissor manufacturers in Europe. They've spent their entire history proudly forging scissors in Sheffield.

Beautifully hand crafted by experienced craftsmen using traditional techniques, each pair of shears is lovingly made to last you - and your grandchildren - a lifetime. With corrosion protection on the inside of the blades, these shears are capable of precisely cutting through all types of fabric, from the most delicate silks and voiles to heavy weight denims. Whiteley's also offer a sharpening service should your scissors get dulled or blunt, so you are always able to get the perfect cut on your fabric.

Made from hot forged carbon steel using traditional techniques, Wilkinson Sidebent fabric shears are trusted by tailoring and dressmaking professionals worldwide. The name comes from the original patent filed by Thomas Wilkinson & Son - another scissor manufacturer bought by William Whiteley & Sons in 1875 - who invented this classic design which is now used by scissor manufacturers around the world.

The Haberdasher Bee is a sustainable haberdashery supplier and shop. It is currently one of the only sustainable haberdashery stores online in the world, supporting clients including everyone from large crafting companies and craft sample developers, to small family businesses and solo crafters.

About The Haberdashery Shop

Owned by myself, Leanne (you can find out more here), I’m also naturally interested in sustainable haberdashery supply, design, natural dyes and I’m currently building a profile as a sustainable crafts blogger. When I’m not in the studio, I’m probably roaming the wild with my husband, or snuggling up with some homemade goodies and our equally wild(ish) cats. As a small business owner, I appreciate your support as part of a community of independent crafters, designers and suppliers who are also making the change and helping the world to go plastic-free.

The Haberdasher Bee store is made for, and inspired by, the knitters, sewists, crocheters and home crafting communities, as well as the wider textiles market. I also have blog posts across the rest of the website geared specifically for you.

Finding inspiration on The Haberdasher Bee blog

As well as the haberdashery shop, I hope to inspire people to make things in a more sustainable way. Everything that I write for this site including my knitting blog posts, crochet blog posts, sewing blog posts and dyeing blog posts are all available freely. After searching for sustainable haberdashery tools myself – and finding that they were too expensive or poorly made – I decided to try and fix the problem myself by building a business around it! That’s why the sustainable tools supplied here are made to last, and designed to be plastic-free!

I am also active on social media. The Haberdasher Bee is active on Instagram and Pinterest mostly, and also on Facebook from time to time. If you’d like to contact me for any bulk sustainable haberdashery order, you can do so here.
