It all started with a picnic basket…
Well, that’s not quite correct. It actually started because we couldn’t find a picnic basket – or not one made in Great Britain, anyway.
And that got us thinking. Because we surely weren’t the only ones struggling to find UK-made goods of all kinds on the internet…
What if we could gather together all the best small traders, crafters, manufacturers, designer-makers, entrepreneurs and artists in Britain and put them in one place?
We started looking around and found that, although there are lots of online marketplaces, none of them seemed to cater for the microbusinesses and solo entrepreneurs. And they weren’t exclusive to UK-made goods.
We wanted to give the tiny UK businesses, the ones that create beautiful, unique goods, a place to grow.
You’re probably wondering what makes us different.
