Our Labour of Love is Local

We're lovingly building up British-made brands in every village, town and city from John O' Groats to Land's End, so we can save our stellar handcrafting skills, support our gloriously diverse communities, shine a (very bright but energy efficient) light on all-things-local, and tiptoe onto UK high streets with the daintiest carbon footprint you ever did see.
