Corgi was founded in 1893 by Rhys Jones in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Today, the tradition of unbroken family involvement in the business is carried on by Chris Jones and Lisa Wood, great great grandchildren of Rhys Jones. They have maintained the uncompromising commitment to quality that has always been part of the Corgi brand. Lisa’s knitwear designs have appeared under many haute couture labels, and sell in the finest stores all over the world.

Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services for at least five years to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales. Warrants have always been regarded as demonstrating excellence and quality, and are highly prized. There are around 850 Royal Warrant Holders representing a huge cross-section of trade and industry. They range from traditional craftspeople to global and multinational firms operating at the cutting edge of technology. Warrants are granted to named individuals – Grantees – who must personally ensure the Warrant is used correctly. Warrant Holders may display the relevant Royal Arms and the legend ‘By Appointment’ on their products, premises, stationery, vehicles and advertising.

Corgi was awarded a Royal Warrant in 1989 by His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. This has become a mark of quality for the company’s products across the world, and is regarded with enormous pride by everyone at Corgi.
