Careers

Bamford is a philosophy rather than a seasonal fashion label. It began with the passionate convictions of our founder Carole Bamford to make natural products using the best artisans from around the world. Bamford is about the simple pleasure of quality. Since 2006, this philosophy has created timeless clothing from the finest natural fibres and purest body care from organic and botanical ingredients. Here is authentic luxury: serene, timeless and pure.

Inspired by nature and travel, Carole Bamford created the Bamford way of life for those who value individuality. We take special care to find the rare and cherish the exceptional.

At the core is our relationships with people and the world around us. We want women to feel comforted by what they put on and against their skin, and hope that every timeless Bamford creation will be treasured, from one generation to the next. Bamford is simply how we think life should be – good, beautiful and inspiring.
