ANK CAMDEN is the UK’s premier supplier of fittings and hardware for the accessories and footwear market, operating through its Camden based shop.
Acquired by Leather Inside Out during summer 2018, directed and managed by Amba Armstrong, ANK Camden has evolved from a succession of family managed specialist hardware and fittings supply businesses serving the leather and fashion industries, developed and expanded over sixty years and offering an extensive selection of high-quality and luxury fittings and hardware sourced from the UK and Italy for both in store and online purchase, and sourcing for a diverse customer base headed by leading British fashion names including The Cambridge Satchel Company, Peter Jones, Globetrotter, Ally Capellino and Alexander McQueen, tertiary education establishments including the London College of Fashion and Nottingham Trent University and the British footwear industry.
From summer 2019, ANK Camden will be entirely staffed by beneficiaries of Leather Inside Out, providing roles for serving prisoners on release on temporary licence and ex-offenders, including those on licence post mandatory release at the half way point of their custodial sentences.
ANK Camden is grateful to have been supported in its implementation and launch by former pupils and students of Highgate School, South Hampstead High School, Woodhouse School, Wimbledon High School and Nottingham Trent University through its Schools Summer Internship Programme.
