Pier 74 was founded in 2016 by Angela Brown and Julie Coxon. The pair met at Wigan Art College two decades earlier. Angela specialised in textile and surface pattern design, and Julie in graphic design.
Wigan Pier and the duo’s birth year of 1974 lent its name to the business.
They use traditional craft techniques to repurpose materials that would otherwise end up in landfill, into useful products. Pier74’s signature design is a combination of wool and leather.
As well as products to keep your computer kit cosy, you’ll also find bags, purses and wallets.
