A Sedbergh clothing manufacturer is soon to be thrust into the limelight when the next episode of a hugely popular TV show airs.

Fans of Killing Eve will see lead charcter Villanelle, played by Jodie Comer, sporting one of Farfield Clothing's own Shaker Geese jackets when Episode 2 airs on Monday 7 March.

Farfield Clothing have been manufacturing their traditionally rural clothing range from their premises on Joss Lane, Sedbergh, since 1999, after moving from Farfield Mill, where they started trading from in 1985.

The news came as a welcome surprise to Farfield Clothing Managing Director Jean Pearson, who said: "We had an ordinary online order for a Shaker Geese jacket, which said Elstree Studios on it.

"I didn't think any more of it, until we received a phonecall from a man asking for another one, but it has to be identical.

"So Jean being Jean, asked if that meant we would be on TV, and he sad yes, we're filming the new series of Killing Eve at the moment, and the main character is wearing your jacket!"

"It's probably a one-minute wonder, but we've had an awful lot of owners from it, from Romania, Finland, America, China, all over."

Jean discovered Jodie Comer was wearing the jacket in Episode 2 by sheer chance: "I had just watched Dragon's Den, and about to change over, and a trailer for the new episode of Killing Eve came on, and I saw our jacket on that - I was getting a bit jittery after it hadn't been in the first one!"

All of Farfield's garments are manufactured at their premises, with all fabric coming from Yorkshire, and Jean said that this environmentally-friendly process is becoming ever more prevelant:

"A lot of people like the fact that it's British, its made in a rural area - our style hasn't really changed since we started, and the the quality of fabric is fantastic.

"Customers often comment that they've had one of our jackets for 10 years or more, and its still as good as new - you don't find that on the high street when big retailers are sometimes making 1000 per cent mark-up on fashionable jackets imported from China.

"People like to come into the shop that are different - you won't find it anywhere else, and we can adapt jackets and patterns to different body shapes.

"If you see a Farfield Clothing label, you know its come from here."
