Who are we and what’s our ethos?
Owner of From Britain with Love is Laura Dunkley – an ex national women’s magazine editor and writer with decades of experience at the highest level:
‘After moving to rural Hampshire with my family, I was looking for a way to use my high-level media experience and help make a positive difference. I wanted to apply this to my passions: ethical makers, local flower growers and creative living.
The From Britain with Love Directory offers ethical UK makers, producers and creative workshop providers an effective – and cost-effective – way to connect with a large and highly engaged audience. Apply to list with us now!

We are page 1 in google for a wide range of popular ethical and sustainably made in Britain/UK search terms including British Flowers, ethical gifts, ethical and sustainable fashion and ethical/natural beauty made in UK/Britain.

Some kind words:
“As a growing brand, The Stitch Society are proud to source and make all our products in the UK, so it has been great working with Laura at From Britain With Love. The ethos behind From Britain With Love reinforces our brand and their exposure has helped our brand gain recognition on a variety of platforms. The attention to detail and quality of the work and support from the team has been really great and the feedback given in terms of quantitative information has been a real help to us.
We can wholeheartedly recommend working with Laura and her team and hope to continue to build our relationship with them in the future.”
Charlotte Meek, founder The Stitch Society (listed in our directory here)
‘I’m so grateful to you Laura and your team for your belief and enthusiasm in my products, and for enabling my small business to benefit from being featured and promoted on your site. You offer a valuable passion for the people and products you choose to work with. Bringing up children, I find precious little time to effectively promote myself on social media, and can’t image my business thriving without this element, particularly as I live slightly ‘out of the way’ on an offshore island – the Isle of Wight.
Seagrass directly benefits from your specifically targeted and highly engaged social media presence which have really benefitted my business. I have found a much wider UK audience thanks to you!’
