Lambourne started out in Birmingham, Great Charles Street in 1868. This was and still is the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter. Started by Barrett Lambourne producing buttons, spats, braces and studs for upper class men. Catering for men they expanded their business over the years and moved to Great Hampton Row, Birmingham (1932) and had another factory in Leominster. It retained its ownership under the Lambourne family until 1981, when it was sold to the Arnold Wills Group. Then in 1999 it was brought by Magnificent Mouchoirs, who changed their name to the Mag Mouch in 2004. The company are based in Rutland, England and are still in business today. They still use the name Sophos as well as Mag Mouch and Harris Tweed.
