INNOVATION IN CRAFT SINCE 1893
DUNHILL & LONDON CRAFT WEEK

As part of London Craft Week 2022, we hosted an ‘Innovation in Craft Since 1893’ exhibition on Wednesday evening at dunhill House, our iconic flagship in the heart of Mayfair. On display were new dunhill creations alongside the storied archive pieces that inspired them: including iconic lighters, writing instruments and leather car coats from the turn of the century, alongside custom suits made for American music and literary icons Frank Sinatra and Truman Capote respectively.

Alongside this unique showcase of archive inspiration and new generation pieces from Creative Director Mark Weston, we also presented our ‘Pillars of Craft’ series that featured bespoke tailoring, custom leather and The White Spot smoking accessories. A true celebration of our specialist artisans and the unique services available at the House.

What is London Craft Week?
Celebrating outstanding British and international creativity, London Craft Week brings together over 250 established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries from around the world. A curated selection based not on price or fame, but underlying substance. Plus, that essential dash of magic and inspiration that separates great from good.
