Tricker’s has held a Royal Warrant with HRH The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles for over 30 years, since 1989.
A Royal Warrant is a recognition to people and companies who have supplied regular goods to the British Royal Family; specifically HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales.
It is a system that has been in place since the 15th Century and exists for the Sovereign to formally recognise suppliers of high-quality goods and services.
In 2019 we were honoured to be visited by HRH Prince Charles at the Tricker’s factory in Northampton. He toured the factory and met with our craftspeople, and was shown the processes of creation and inspection that our footwear goes through to ensure quality. We also showed him the bespoke lasts which are used to create the Tricker’s shoes which he wears.
He revealed our commemorative plaque and congratulated us on our 190th anniversary. He gracefully commented that “it is marvellous to see such highly skilled operations [...] and hope that we keep it all going for many more years.”
