Cornish Smocks

Share this page

We've teamed up with The Smock Shop - makers of traditional Cornish fishermen's smocks in West Cornwall since 1976 - to bring you a unique garment, locally printed with our St Martin's Isles of Scilly design. Originally made from the canvas from old sails, now made from 100% cotton drill, these smocks are hardwearing and practical, famously known for fading and wearing with age. 

Cornish smocks were traditionally worn as an overgarment by fishermen to keep their wool jumpers clean underneath. They've since become cherished as practical working clothes for artists and gardeners, as well as becoming a fashion item in themselves.
