Designed in England emerged from a life time passion for simply wanting to own a shop with a difference. A boutique where service, old fashioned values and individuality could be brought together with contemporary design and innovation. Parallel to this Designed In England continues to fly the flag for Great British design and manufacture, by ensuring all products, gifts and beautiful things that I source are designed and made in England and the Great British Isles.
Designed in England celebrates Great British design whilst encapsulating a story behind each and every product selected for sale. I want you to know who the designer is, where your tea towel is hand screen printed and what kiln fired your bone china mug. I am passionate about selling products that you can connect with and celebrate home-grown manufacture.
Designed in England is different to some other online shops. Ensuring that a relationship is built with the maker and to support emerging talents to keep British design evolving is hugely important to me. Designed In England 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 honest lead times of items you purchase but also enables the makers and designers to build on their collections and businesses.
I opened Designed in England's virtual doors in 2010 and today am building its reputation for showcasing emerging talents alongside established designers from across the UK with the predominant ingredient of all, being products that are designed and made on home soil.
I genuinely hope you enjoy visiting my online shop and I would love to hear from you.
