How it all started...
Born, bred and based in Suffolk, I’m the founder of Ginger & Jardine. I developed and launched my range in response to the frustration of trying to find clothing that offered comfort and durability but was also stylish and did not cost a small fortune.
I grew up on a family farm where most of my childhood was spent outdoors; riding, helping on the farm and playing sport. After completing a degree at the Royal Agricultural College I went on to qualify as a Rural Practice Surveyor before moving into the Telecommunications Sector.
Having enjoyed a rewarding and fulfilling career, regular trips along the M4 and frequent stays away were taking their toll on family life. In search of a new challenge and with a desire to do something different, the idea of Ginger & Jardine was born.
All our clothes are designed in house with a focus on comfort and practicality. You will find no scratchy labels in the back neck seam and the garments all have a little stretch and are a bit longer in the body than many high street brands. We aim to ensure your ultimate comfort whilst not compromising you style.
As well as looking and feeling good I wanted my range to be ethical and sustainable using fabrics that do not drain our natural resources. Following months of research, testing and trials I opted for bamboo based fabrics as they offer so many fantastic qualities; they are super soft, antibacterial, moisture wicking and sustainable.

I hope you like what I have to offer.
