Our growing selection of eco friendly products includes ceramics, jewellery, prints and skincare and reflects our passion for great design, responsibly sourced materials and meticulous craftsmanship. We enjoy bringing together a collection of products that look great, are made to last and where everyone involved in their creation is treated fairly. All our suppliers are independent businesses, some based locally, most of the rest in the UK and a handful of small businesses in Europe.
We particularly love their ceramics for the kitchen and the lovely greeting cards. Well worth a visit.
This week we are focusing on our favourite independant brands and sharing what they do.
Right now we all need to support each other and this includes the small businesses that will no doubt be struggling. Any order, any size will go a long way.
