About Myddleton Road

In a world of chain stores and boring ‘clone-town’ high-streets, places like Myddleton Road were supposed to have died out long ago.

But hidden away in the heart of Bowes Park, North London, a true community high street of independent traders still exists.

Myddleton Road had its heyday in the Victorian era, when it was the commercial centre for the whole area. Photos of the street at this time are still proudly displayed in businesses up and down its length.

The road has had highs and lows aplenty since then.

But throughout, Myddleton Road has stood out for its small, privately-owned businesses who know each other and their customers by name.

It is a place of real people, of fortunes and failures, friendships and feuds.

Since the 1970s, Myddleton Road has also been a home-from-home for North London’s Greek Cypriot community, giving the street a unique character and warmth. Many longstanding Cypriot businesses helped to keep the road alive during some of the difficult days of the past.

So, come. Visit the glorious and entertaining community that is Myddleton Road.

And remember, everyone has a story…

After years of practice, Romy has found that gently taming and suggesting shape yields the most elegant results. Even when she started small with wallets back in 1987, she always matched her meticulousness with curiosity. Travelling around the globe, she has studied various techniques and designs that have helped her cultivate a singular yet international style. Today, she has a few apprentices of her own and spends most of her time crafting with them in her Montréal studio. She still makes time to learn new techniques and exhibits at tradeshows all around the world.
