Made in Britain article in Pretty Nostalgic magazine

Pretty Nostalgic is a bi-monthly lifestyle magazine that celebrates everything brilliantly British, so it was very fitting that Make it British should be asked to make a contribution to its editorial this month.

If you have never managed to see a copy of Pretty Nostalgic then I highly recommend that you do so. Published independently by Nicole Burnett, who had no previous experience of publishing when she launched the magazine two years ago, the magazine shares a very similar ethos to Make it British – it encourages its readers to  denounce mass consumerism, bad quality and poor value; to shop at local independent stores and markets and to buy British wherever possible. It is printed locally by a family printers in Wales and each issue is like a collectors item, probably reflecting the fact that Nicole was a museum curator before she launched the magazine 2 years ago.

In Issue 12, which is on sale from this week, you will find an article that I have written especially for the magazine. It explains how Make it British came about, as well as why I believe that we need a recognisable made in Britain logo to make it easier for shoppers to recognise British-made goods.

You can read a copy of the article that I wrote by clicking on the image below, or buy a copy of the magazine directly from the Pretty Nostalgic website here. The magazine is also available to buy in WH Smiths and many independent stores.

    Hi Kate,
    My daughter-in-law makes lovely hand-made bunting in Harden, West Yorkshire. How does she get the ‘made in britain’ logo?
