Curtice Brothers

Back in 1868, Edgar and Simeon Curtice opened a grocery store where they created their rich tomato sauce. Today, on Brick Lane, their legacy has been reignited by a young chef who goes by the name of Mario. Using fresh ingredients sourced from organic farms, this delicious ketchup is the best thing since Heinz. You’ll find bottles and bottles at the store ready to be taken home and lavished unashamedly all over your dinner.

Their range of beautiful, textured knitwear has been manufactured by a team of British knitters so you can rest assured that what you’re buying is 100% natural and ethical.
