Britain's Oldest Family Businesses - S1 Ep2 - Toye
Toye - In the second episode we learn about Toye and Co who make items of regalia such as medals, uniforms and ceremonial clothing. They use traditional techniques to make items for the military, exclusive societies, foreign leaders and even for The Queen. The business has been handed down from father to son for hundreds of years but for the first time, a woman is in charge. Fiona Toye goes on a journey to see how the business has evolved and survived for generations. Meeting with historians and experts, she traces the roots of the family back to the mid-1700s, when the Toyes were illiterate, artisan silk weavers in London’s East End. This is the story of one family’s entrepreneurial drive across the generations, a journey that’s taken them to the heart of the British establishment. (From the UK) (Documentary) (Rpt) G CC
