Hand & Lock produce the Lord Mayor of Westminster's robe

Last Sunday, 14th of October 2012, the Lord Mayor of Westminster presented herself at the ‘Evensong Celebrating Service’ in Westminster Abbey in her stunning new robe.

The robe, called ‘The Diamond Jubilee Robe’, was created in its entirety by Hand & Lock.

It took 4 weeks for the 56 individual golden ornaments alone to be hand embroidered, and nearly one week to put the robe together
