I have been winning rosettes with my various horses and ponies since I was 4 years old. Back then winning a single tier knife pleat rosette, with short tails and a tape fastening was all a girl could wish for. Now however, with the wide variety of ribbons and pleats it is a very different story.
11 years ago, disappointed with the quality of rosettes I had been awarded, I purchased a ribbon pleater, a glue gun and a printing machine, borrowed my mother-in-laws sewing machine (which, I still have and she has bought a new one) and started making rosettes on the dining table. Orchard Rosettes was born.
Now 500miles of ribbon later, things are very different, I have a wider product range, and also supply a huge range of discounted trophies with in house engraving facilities. Last year I introduced a native pony head to my trophy range which is exclusive to Orchard Rosettes.
It is not only me now, I have help to ensure orders are despatched on time, but the quality remains the same.
We supply rosettes, sashes, trophies and medals for many different events, the obvious ones being horse and dog shows, school sports days, elections, birthday parties, hen parties, flower shows, corporate events. They have also been used on TV and in films in the UK and abroad.
You are welcome to choose from my standard rosette, trophy and medal ranges or we can produce bespoke items.
