A little about Sandwich...

In 1983 led to the birth of the “SANDWICH” label. For Veldhoven and Daniels – the driving spirit behind Sandwich who had meanwhile been promoted to Creative Director – this marked the beginning of the story of a fashion line which, after 25 years, is still as successful as ever.

The first Sandwich shop was opened in 1988. Since then, more than 50 shops have been opened all over the world.

We will now be stocking this fantastic Dutch brand in our Burwash Manor Shop.
