Outerwear brand Lavenham is struggling to meet stockists’ orders after its warehouse was broken into earlier this month with £60,000 worth of product stolen.
The quilted jacket brand’s warehouse in Sudbury, Suffolk, was broken into on February 9. Police said that 24 boxes containing 441 jackets, worth more than £60,000 at retail value, were stolen.
Lavenham said that the break-in has lead to a loss of business because stockists orders cannot be replaced in time.
The company is offering a £1,000 reward for the recovery of the stolen items or the successful prosecution of anyone involved.
Lavenham, which is named after the Suffolk village in which it was founded in 1969, has 65 stockists in the UK. The brand also distributes internationally with 40 accounts in Italy, 18 around the rest of Europe and 200 in Japan.
