Captain Cumberpatch was conceived in 2013 becoming fully active the following year. A family run business which was originally operated by Si who does all the design work, good bad and sometimes ugly (but loveable). Assisted (or Directed?) by wife Jo who keeps the back office running while independently operating the Leeds Steampunk Market brand.
The range has grown from half a dozen or so items at the outset to a series of collections numbering well over 5000 items in stock at any given time. There's never a set theme - but whatever it is, it's just "different"... and affordable.
We actively promote Steampunk through both the Cumberpatch and LSM brands and recognise the role that groups and societies have to play in this. This can take the shape of discounts for group orders to sponsorship where we feel this is mutually beneficial.
We're always interested in your ideas and like to respond to this with new products now matter how odd! Please, no more Smurfs or Rubber Ducks, I just don't think we can take any more of those!
Since my husband Si passed away from cancer on 1st October 2020, I have now taken over the running of this brand. He had already taught me everything on how to make his designs and I've come up with more of my own in addition to ones he had in the pipeline.
In the words of Queen - "The Show Must Go On"...
