Designed in England emerged from a life time passion for simply wanting to own a shop with a difference. A boutique of where service, old fashioned values and individuality could be brought together with contemporary design and innovation.
Designed in England celebrates Great British design from across the Isle whilst encapsulating a story behind each and every product selected for sale.
As a wife of a ceramicist and with a history of retail it seemed only natural that a virtual shop could enable all of these values to make a new home. Where past and present may come together through finding the best of British Craft and Product to be sold in one place.
Designed in England is unlike any other online shop. We ensure that the relationship between maker and buyer is unique and that we support emerging talents to keep British design evolving.
It sounds odd but we actually hold stock and pay for product immediately from the makers, manufacturers and designers, something that has diminished in the online industries and shops of today. This enables us to be honest with you on lead times of items you purchase but also enables the makers and designers to build on their collections and businesses.
Designed in England opened its virtual doors in 2010 and today builds on its reputation for showcasing emerging and established talents from across the UK and the British Isles.
I hope you enjoy visiting and I look forward to growing the boutique.
