About Us


Gary NewBold.

I started English Utopia in 2012, having formerly been the head of design for Barbour and have also worked as a freelance designer for several other luxury, heritage brands over the years. 

All design, pattern making and cutting for all of the products that you see in these pages have involved me in those capacities. We make EVERYTHING in house, here in our workshop in York UK. All fabrics are purchased in Europe from only the finest fabric mills. We believe in transparency and traceability for all of our products and to this end, we always inform you as to where and from whom we buy our raw materials and each product we make comes with it's own I.D number. 

We export all over the world via our website business, but we are also stocked by a number of higher end independent retail stores in the USA.
