MADE IN THE UK

All our wares are currently sourced from lovely small-scale suppliers in the UK. We always order only what we need, so that that no products are ever wasted. We are not opposed to sourcing products from other countries, if we cannot find suppliers in the UK, as long as they meet out standards of production and sustainability.

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 the UK, ensuring a product with a local as possible supply chain. Currently our whiteware is sourced partly from China (mugs – sadly no UK suppliers are offering vegan fine china) and partly from the UK (candles/bowls)

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 organic 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. All inks used are eco-friendly.

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 organic half panama material and velvet that is sourced from Britain’s last remaining velvet mill, whom we are extremely proud to support.

Wallpaper

All our wallpaper is made in the UK with a company dedicated to sustainability. All their inks are classed as water-based, which means they are non-toxic and very low in VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), and all their paper and non-woven substrates are sourced from FSC® certified forests. They even source their energy from renewable sources.
