Brand: Clair de Lune. Made in the UK.
Once upon a time, in 1943 to be exact, Harry Clarence Rodgers, grandfather of current MD John Rodgers formed the company as a source of employment for his son Dawson who was returning from active duty during the Second World War whilst stationed in Cairo. To differ between the family name and that of his son Dawson, the company was registered using the combination of the family surname and son Dawson’s christian name, and so Dawson Rodgers Ltd was formed. Dawson’s son John, now the current MD joined the business in 1964 as the 3rd generation and has continued the family tradition of producing quality nursery products to the highest standards of workmanship. In 1986 having produced ‘own brand’ to so many of its customers, John Rodgers decided that the launch of its own corporate brand was long overdue and so ‘Clair de Lune’ was born. The company continues to manufacture a number of nursery products at their south Manchester factory where they employ a highly skilled workforce of around 45 personnel including John’s son Guy, the 4th generation. With a team of talented, dedicated British designers, Clair de Lune produce beautiful nursery collections, designed for the modern parents of today. John, his wife Polly and son Guy along with a strong dedicated work force continue to adapt to their ever changing market, a true sign of stability having just celebrated the company's 70 plus years in the business.
