MADE IN THE UK

Fine Bone China: Designed and Decorated in the UK

All our fine bone china is decorated, gilded and fired in Stoke on Trent, also called The Potteries, an area with a long history of fine china and pottery production, dating back to the 17th century.

Our illustrated prints are made into decals, which are coloured films placed on the finest Chinese whiteware, by a screen printing process. Each decal is then carefully cut out from its sheet, placed in water to make it malleable, then carefully applied to each item by expert hands. The ware is then fired to both develop and set the colours in the print, and finally each item is carefully gilded by an extremely steady hand. No gold is wasted, and even the cloths used to clean the gilding brushes are sent back for recycling to extract any reusable gold. Our packaging is also made in Stoke on Trent, ensuring a product with a local as possible supply chain.

Kitchen Textiles and Makeup Pouches: Designed and Made in the UK

Our range of makeup pouches, tea towels and aprons are printed and sewn in-house at a fabulous textile print company the town of Leek. The expert hands at this facility digitally print our artwork on cotton sateen and half-panama fabrics sourced from an excellent mill in Pakistan that has won numerous local and international awards for quality/health/safety/environment/social responsibility.

Cushions – Designed and Made in the UK, partially with UK made materials.

Our cushions are also digitally printed and sewn in-house at the same facility that manufactures our kitchen textiles and travel bags. The cushions are a mixture of half panama material and velvet that is sourced from Britain’s last remaining velvet mill, whom we are extremely proud to support.

Silk Scarves: Designed and Made in the UK

Our supple silk scarves are digitally printed on Chinese silk by a fabulous silk-print business in Tewkesbury, where each scarf is hand rolled by local residents, many of them young mothers who are able to fit this work around maternity leave/childcare, so as to gain some extra income whilst a traditional work schedule is unsuitable. We are delighted to support these young families, and are grateful for the beautiful work they do for us.
