The oldest sheepskin footwear manufacturer in the UK

Their Story

R. J. Draper & Co Ltd is a family business which was established in 1937. Their factory is based in Glastonbury in the South West of England, which is traditionally the centre for England’s sheepskin industry. Four generations of the Draper family have run the company, manufacturing in their Glastonbury factory for more than 85 years. They are the oldest sheepskin footwear maker in the United Kingdom today.

They specialise in making luxurious leather and sheepskin slippers, sheepskin boots, gloves and rugs, for both men and women, in traditional English designs which are popular throughout the world.
