Our Standards

CW Headdress is ISO9001 accredited – which underlines our focus on both the quality of the product as well as the quality of our processes and customer service.


CW Headdress was founded in 1900 and has always offered a core product range of military, police and corporate headwear. CW has operated for most of this period, from its factory and headquarters in Witney, Oxfordshire.

Alongside Christys, CW Headdress was one of the foremost suppliers of ceremonial and protective headwear for the men and women of the police and armed forces. Our headwear is to be found on active service both in the UK and internationally, as well as taking pride of place in many police and military museums around the country.

These two renowned companies – Christy & Co and CW Headdress Рwere brought together under one corporate roof in 1996, when Coates Viyella sold CW Headdress, and were brought together under the one physical roof in Witney in 2001
