We've been designing and manufacturing nursery bedding and baby accessories from our base in Greater Manchester for over 75 years. What we don't know about Moses baskets, cot & crib bedding, well, it's just not worth knowing!
Here’s how all it began:
Harry Clarence Rodgers originally formed the company way back in 1943 as a source of employment for his son, Dawson. Dawson was returning from active duty in Cairo, where he was stationed during WWII. From that date, the company first known as Dawson Rodgers Ltd. started trading.
In 1964, Dawson’s own son, John Rodgers, joined the family business. He’s the current MD and still refuses to sit still, and as the 3rd generation, he’s continued the legacy of producing quality products to the highest standards of workmanship in the UK.
In 1986, having produced ‘own brand’ to so many customers, John decided that it was time to expand the business… and he launched his own brand, and so, ‘Clair de Lune’ was born!
We continue to manufacture lots of nursery and baby products at our south Manchester factory, where we employ a highly-skilled local workforce of around 60 staff, including John’s son Guy, the 4th generation!
“With a team of talented, dedicated British designers, we produce beautiful nursery bedding collections, sheets and blankets, and a range of pushchair and car seat accessories, designed for modern parents and their little ones.”
John, his wife Polly, and son Guy, along with the support and hard work of the ever-growing team, are well and truly set to keep the family business growing by adapting to the ever-changing demands of parents (because who isn’t when it comes down to the safety and security of your precious new baby?) and the baby bedding market.
