Shop with us and support small business! Here are a few examples of the contemporary, handmade craft makers we work with.
Pattern and Leaf
Based in Skipton, North Yorkshire. She’s always been inspired by nature, and have been lucky enough to work in ecology and conservation for the whole of my career. She’s an experienced botanist and love the colours, patterns and textures of nature.
Ark Colour Design
Ark Colour Design is based in Cambridge and specialises in fun, affordable and unique embossed gifts. The leather products are made by a family run manufacturer in Scotland and every piece is hand finished making each one unique.
Red Paper House
Red Paper House is a Leeds based jewellery and accessory company created by Amy Hall. The unique geometric pieces are hand drawn and then laser cut before being hand painted with designs and colours inspired by elements of nature.
All of the packaging we use is recycleable, and much of it is made with recycled materials. We strive to source products from makers who give consideration to sustainability in their production and packaging practices.
