Find the UK’s best makers, artists, local producers & creative courses

Source hand-picked contemporary British makers and independents in the beautiful From Britain with Love directory. Find the UKs most inspiring artisans, makers, growers, producers, local shop keepers and creative course providers.

We aren’t trying to fill our website with everything British-made. Just a curated selection of the British makers, producers and artists we love and feel passionate about supporting.

For us it’s all about finding, and sharing, special and unique people creating products that have been crafted with care to last a lifetime. We are passionate about design with a timeless and beautiful simplicity that goes beyond trend and fashion. Why would you produce – or buy – something throwaway, swiftly destined for landfill, when you can create – or buy – something to give pleasure for lifetimes? For us, it’s all about love at the end of the day. Loving what you do, loving what you buy and loving how it feels when you support something worthwhile. We get a kick out of sourcing, and sharing, the UKs most exciting makers, growers, producers, shop keepers and creative courses.
