The Haberdasher’s Company founded in the C14th

For as long as man has worn clothes, they have adorned their garments with haberdashery. They have worn hats and caps, added ribbons and buckles, brooches and pins. The Haberdashers Company has its roots in the 14th century, when two distinct branches of the trade of haberdashery existed.
