While traditionally specialising in ceremonial regalia, it is Wyedean’s versatility and adaptability that has seen it branch out and succeed in other fields, reaching as far out as Hollywood. Superstar Tom Cruise wore Wyedean’s custom-made sashes in the film The Last Samurai.
In fact Wyedean’s accessories have been worn by many other top Hollywood actors as film companies regularly request Wyedean’s with unique wardrobe requirements. John Cleese wears Wyedean-produced items in the first two Harry Potter films where he plays Nearly Headless Nick. Brad Pitt is also seen wearing items from Wyedean in Fury.
Wyedean was called upon to provide many hundreds of metres of bandages for The Mummy and it created the sashes, epaulettes and cords used on the uniforms in Gulliver’s Travels.
Other films Wyedean items can be found in include Master and Commander, Saving Private Ryan, The Man in the Iron Mask, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Band of Brothers, The Four Feathers, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
