Duffel Coats for the whole family!
Our signature range offers duffel coats and beanies for children and adults, including hip winter coats for small to medium sized dogs. We also create a range of blankets and knee rugs.
What we do
Kensington Sherpa products are designed and manufactured in Napier, a small town in the Overberg. At our "family style" workshop, which is exclusively staffed by a previous unskilled workforce, we are passionate about quality and take great care in creating the Kensington Sherpa range.
On your morning walk, at a sporting event, a chilly night out braaing with friends, taking a walk on the beach, wear it everywhere, wear it anytime.
The Kensington Sherpa Range
Our unique fabric is a synthetic knitted, and bonded fleece which is exclusively produced to specification for Blue Centipede, and is: • Warm but lightweight • Easily washable in a cold water wash, and dries very quickly • Durable & Stylish • Guaranteed not to Pill
Our Manufacturing Methodology
Each garment is individually hand cut, and is made in totality by one seamstress from start to finish. Each duffel coat also has a unique handmade "skapie" embroidered with the French knot technique, which serves as the hallmark of a true Kensington Sherpa duffel coat.
Raising a legend
In 2012, we adopted an abused puppy called Kensington, he developed into such an awesome, happy boy, so when we started Blue Centipede, we immediately agreed that our 1st range would carry his name…and when we discovered our unique bonded fleece we combined his name with that of “Sherpa” ..as the Sherpa’s of the Himalayas are trusted and reliable, so our fabric would make duffel coats that are trusted and reliable… such was born Kensington Sherpa!
