Made in Cornwall… maybe it’s something to do with living in a region known for its sparkling seas, vibrant seaside villages, colourful harbours and great local produce. Whatever it is, Cornwall is full of creative talent and exciting local places to shop and spend time. Here are a few of our favourites all made in Cornwall with love…
Tom Raffield creates a range of award-winning contemporary wooden home accessories and lighting designs, all hand-crafted at his workshop in Helston.
Tregothnan is a beautiful estate in Cornwall growing, amongst other things, English tea.
Tregothnan tea is from the United Kingdom’s first tea Garden – the first ever tea company to have created a range of teas homegrown on British soil. Cornish tea is blended with the finest leaves from Assam and Darjeeling to create their distinctive flavours. They also sell tea plants so you can start your own tea garden!
Nicole Heidaripour is an artist, print maker and illustrator based in Port Isaac selling a range of quirky prints from their emporium.
Cornish Yarg – a soft, nettle-wrapped cheese was first made 30 years ago on a farm on Bodmin Moor, getting the name by spelling the name of its creator – Alan Gray – backwards. Now made on a farm at Pengreep, near Truro, and winner of many accolades, this is a regional cheese to be proud of.
With a workshop in Penzance and lovely shop in St Ives, Poppy Treffry is a Cornish treasure. Based on Poppy’s own hand-drawn sketches, her designs are all cut out by hand and stitched in Cornwall by a small team of skilled stitchers. Quirky, handmade and full of charm.
Stocking the full current season collection, as well as a selection of seconds and ends of lines at reduced prices, the Celtic & Co Newquay factory shop is a real find if you are in the area. Known as ‘the home of British sheepskin’, Celtic & Co offers a large range of luxuriously comfortable sheepskin boots, slippers and accessories.
