About Jigsaw

Jigsaw are a contemporary British fashion brand, creating beautiful and timeless clothes and accessories. The firm believes that fashion is temporary but style is permanent.

In 1970, John Robinson opened the first store in Brighton. Along the way, the company has won many British Fashion Council awards, launched an accessories brand in 2001 and opened its first US branch in LA in 2004.

Today, under Chief Executive Officer Peter Ruis, Jigsaw have stores throughout the UK, plus branches in Ireland, Australia, Singapore and the US.

Jigsaw designs timeless, independent-minded and fun pieces that can be worn for years. They use the best fabrics to produce clothes with designer quality and detailing but at high-street prices.

In 2015, Jigsaw handed £493,000 to workers in a profit-sharing deal. Employees of at least one year’s standing were given at least one share in the company, and on Christmas Eve in 2015 received a dividend of £400 per share.

In style and truth, everyone can embrace their own style and not slavishly follow the fashion world. That means putting style before trends and truth before hype.
