Localness and Heritage
all about localness!
For us, localness comes first! We found out that all the things we love could be handmade in Britain, locally and sustainably. So we set about creating a unique range of products -including gourmet foodstuffs, natural skincare, heritage gifts and souvenirs- that is entirely crafted by creators in the UK.
The reason? Pride in and enthusiasm for artisan production. Why ship in finished goods from afar, embellished with New Forest Poneys or Titanics and pass them as local gifts and souvenirs?
Authenticity is our motto and we hope it’s yours too!

There are amazing natural resources here in Hampshire. We set about harnessing these and championing artisan production. Could it be done? Could we launch a range of products handmade in Britain, crafted by creators up and down the country, using local resources as much as possible?
Well, yes! We’re beyond delighted to offer a range of ethical, sustainable, handmade products, some which are created specially, others that we’ve carefully chosen from independent makers and curated for you.
Everyone likes to be recognised for what they stand for, and we’re no exception!
In October 2020 we were awarded Silver for Sustainable Business by the SO STAR Awards. In January 2021 we scooped the winning spot for Best Ethical Gifts in South West England by Corporate Live Wire’s Prestige Awards. We’re really excited! Our biggest wish? Continue to expand our range of products handmade in Britain. To create our own and curate ones that already exist and that we love, so we can share these with you!
