Maker's Quote

As the last working passementerie weaver in London, when I retire it's highly likely my industry in this city will die. Maybe the only way forward is a re-emergence of the concept of patronage, to keep it alive. Without it, this East End tradition, which can be traced back to the Huguenots, will become extinct.
