Bond 60th Anniversary Pocket Squares: Adamley

Posted 28.10.22


20 miles south of Manchester, sitting on the edge of the rolling gritstone and shale hills of the Peak District sits Langley, a small rural village in the shadow of Macclesfield. Since the 1700s, thanks to the transport links of the canal system weaving its way down to the nation's capital, Macclesfield has been a prominent silk city. For centuries, generations of local communities have relied on weaving, dyeing, and printing silk as a prominent source of employment; adopting and perfecting ancient skills and techniques earning English silks a worldwide reputation for excellence. In 1743, the first silk mill was established, and textile manufacturing then dominated the town until the end of the nineteenth century.

Modern digital printing methods have mostly replaced traditional techniques; however, Adamley retains its long-established approach to achieving its distinctive look and feel – long associated with the historical Macclesfield printing district. Utilising the skills and experience of local silk dyers and printers, Adamley is committed to keeping the tradition of silk screen printing alive and is proud to be one of the last surviving screen printing mills in Macclesfield.

We invite you to enjoy a video exploring a small insight into the method of creating a Turnbull & Asser silk pocket square, specifically our Dr. No anniversary pocket square, part of a unique capsule celebrating 60 years of James Bond. Filmed by Tobias May and sound design by Alberto Ladduca.
