Playtime New York 2018

It’s our first time at Playtime New York. We are delighted to show our collection to the US market, to be a part of this must-see event and showcase our unique style of knitting to the children's and maternity wholesale trade.

Established in 1912, G. H. Hurt & Son is a family run business, in its fourth generation. Our pieces are inspired by our rich heritage, made by combining modern design innovation and traditional artisan skills.  From our Shawl Factory, in Nottingham, England, we continue the craft of handframe knitting. Producing lacy knitted shawls with the traditional hand-finished scalloped edges, which makes our product truly unique. Our baby shawls, blankets and layette sets are as popular as ever with the Amercian public. We aim to showcase our baby collection at Playtime New York this year, (to retailers) to allow these unique and exquisite pieces to be even more accessible to US consumers.

The Perfect Gift

Whether it’s for a baby shower, Baptism, Christening or celebratory gift, our baby shawls are renowned for being the perfect gift for any newborn. We have a wide range of shawls to make sure there is something suitable for everyone. Each shawl is lovingly made using the finest yarn and produced by our highly skilled and experienced team. We pride ourselves on ensuring everything is produced under one roof and sourcing as much as we can locally. Throughout our production we use traditional human craft wherever possible. All to lessen our impact on the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.



Wholesale Enquiries

As a small family business, we pride ourselves on excellent service and support to our trade customers. Like our shawls, interest from consumers is ever-lasting and timeless and so we strive to make our shawls available to customers all around the world.
