Nicola Adamson, Designer at JosyRose, gives us the low-down on their business.
JosyRose is an online shop, featuring three core collections; sequins and sequin trims, glitter fabric and diamante. As a third generation family business, manufacturing sequin and sequin trimmings, based in London’s East End, they are the last of their kind in operation therez. Proudly keeping their corner of the renowned London rag trade and its bygone manufacturing heritage alive.
Originally an East End textile factory specialising in traditional pleating, embroidery and studding piece work, in the 1960s a new influence steered the company. They invested in sequin machines, expanding the company to include sequin and sequin trim manufacturing, setting them apart from their competitors.
In the 1990’s they expanded further and opened their first physical shop called Stage 1 and accompanying online store at the famous Spitalfields Market. Their first online sale was a pair of sequin hotpants! The online shop was one of the first of it’s kind and was very successful. Over time this has evolved into what we know today as JosyRose.com
The factory has survived, where others have failed, as each generation has brought with it a new focus, keeping it dynamic and evolving with the times.
JosyRose produce the highest quality loose sequins in over 70 colours featuring metallic, glossy, hologram, matte and satin finishes in 13 shapes and sizes. Their sequin trimmings are also designed and manufactured in-house and are available in a huge range of styles and colour combinations.
Additionally, they specialise in top quality, no-flake glitter fabric, processing A4 craft sheets in-house in over 30 colours. Each glitter fabric sheet is backed with a thick, colour coordinated woven fabric backing and can be cut with strong sharp scissors or die cutting machines. They also supply metre rolls for large high impact projects! Ideal for wallpaper, covering furniture, glitter back drops, window displays and styling.
They are also excited to introduce self adhesive glitter fabrics. Simply peel off the paper backing and stick the sheet/roll down, glitter side up, for a super secure and even application. So, say goodbye to time consuming stitching, gluing and mess in one easy step, leaving you with a professional flawless finish!
JosyRose also stock an extensive crystal diamante collection featuring A-grade machine-cut loose rhinestones in a range of colours and sizes, along with crystal buttons, crystal charms, crystal claps and crystal beads.
