The Handmade Bed Co. story

In 1946 when Walter Croll opened his small upholstery and bedding workshop in the Millbrook area of Southampton, majestic ships from such famous lines as Cunard, P&O and Union Castle daily sailed into Southampton Water. When the Union Castle Line awarded Millbrook a contract to refurnish and carpet their entire fleet, the success of the young Company was assured. The Handmade Bed Company continues Millbrook’s high quality, hand crafted tradition
