In here I'll post some images and provide info and education on what it is we do, what is planned soon and what we aim to achieve for the future.
Henry Carter (my grandfathers name) was started in late 2011, I'd wanted to have my own label for a long time and had just sold my first apartment, some spare cash was available and then was the time otherwise it would never happen.
