Please contact us if you would like to discuss designing your own bespoke mitre.

Ordering Process

Expertly made in our own workroom, each Watts mitre is the result of an intensive and intricate process of hand stitching. Each mitre is therefore unique and an object of high craftsmanship. The mitres can be designed in all heights, fabrics and sizes to suit your requirements. Exclusive silks, trimmings and orphreys are available, with coordinating lappets, as well as simple white mitres.

Step 1. Choose your shape

The first step in creating your bespoke mitre is to choose the shape. We offer three main shapes: the Watts’ Standard mitre which can be made to any height, the Old English mitre and the Prinknash mitre. We can also look into custom shapes, or adjust one of the main shapes for you. Embroidery is also an option, this being completed prior to the making up of the mitre.

Step 2. Choose your fabric and braid combination

After determining the shape of the mitre, the next step is to choose your fabrics and trimmings. For plain white mitres, we offer the highest quality white Barton fabric. For alternative designs, there is the choice of over 200 exclusive fabrics, and a wide range of braids, fringes, cords and linings. Our experienced design team is on hand to guide you through the possible combinations and to provide instructions on how to provide the correct head measurements. Whether you already know which mitre you would like, or are unsure where to start with the design choices, we are here to help. Contact us to start the conversation.

This is a Prinknash mitre, with the main fabric in our Cream & Gold Holbein Silk Damask. The colours of the silk are enriched with the choice of Red & Gold Gothic Trellis for the orphreys.

The design of our Holbein Silk Damask originated from a hand-woven, early 17th-century Genoese damask found at Ham House, a 17th-century house near London. It was re-woven by G. F. Bodley in the 1890s.
