The British Craft Directory was conceived during lockdown with a view to supporting the amazing community of British artisans who are peddling like mad to be seen online amongst the huge weight of corporate advertising and mass-produced products that are out there. This is a place for independent designer-makers to showcase their work to its best-advantage for prospective retail customers.
The British Craft Directory serves as the retail trend sourcing site for buyers in search of the best of handmade British craft items across a broad range of categories.
Whether it is ceramics, glassware, metalwork, woodwork or mixed media; candles, diffusers mirrors, lighting or other decorative items for the home; fine art, giclée prints, greetings cards or papers crafts; fine jewellery, costume jewellery, clothing, fashion accessories or textiles, the only strict criteria for entries on the British Craft Directory is that all the work on display is handmade here in the United Kingdom.
This lovingly curated trade directory offers an inspirational hotbed of some of the best design talent this country has to offer, born in the dark days of lockdown and heading into the future of ecommerce for local designer makers and their amazing retail champions.
Art galleries, gift shops, garden centres, department stores, specialist shops, visitor centres, museum shops, cafes and restaurants which sell cards and crafts, market stall holders and other retailers are warmly invited to shop from the beautiful handmade products that are featured on this site. Everything on the British Craft Directory is guaranteed to be handmade here in Britain, making it the perfect starting point for finding the best British Craft in one place.
