Corgi Hosiery was founded by Rhys Jones in Ammanford, south-west Wales in 1893. The business remains in the family, under the care of his great great grandchildren, Chris Jones and Lisa Wood. They uphold the uncompromising commitment to quality that has always been a foundation of the Corgi name. Corgi began life manufacturing knitted socks for the miners of the local coal industry.
After the collapse of the mining industry in South Wales, Corgi changed direction and started to produce knitwear for the modern market. Today Corgi is sold around the world, and the factory in Carmarthenshire has gone to great efforts to become green and to reduce its carbon footprint.
Corgi was awarded the Royal Warrant in 1989, a recognition of excellence and quality,
and given to those who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, or The Prince of Wales.
