I was delighted to visit Banbury Postiche on Friday to mark their centenary. We are really proud to have the UK’s oldest wig making supplies company here in Banbury.
I was taken on a guided tour of their purpose-built facilities in Wroxton by Sales Director Nick Allen. It was brilliant to see how they make wigs of all shapes and sizes, using both real and artificial hair. I saw how the hair is cleaned and drawn, how the wig foundation is made and how the hair is knotted to it. The level of craftmanship was incredible.
Postiche offer a range of services, from supplying NHS and private patients to supplying for films such as Harry Potter and Star Wars. It is an impressive operation.
Here’s to the next 100 years!
