James Gilbert & Son


Giles Blunden is the owner of James Gilbert & Son, a London-based wire weaving company originally established in 1780. Gilberts produce a wide range of wire products from hand-woven brass mesh for fire screens to frameworks for costumes used in London's annual Notting Hill Carnival, to brass mesh coverings for the arrow slits in the Tower of London. Giles is widely regarded as Britain's foremost authority on weaving wire by hand, and as such his skills are very much in demand for precision work and one-off commissions.
