But where can you reliably find other items made in Britain, and be sure that their production is genuinely taking place within our shores? With many ‘classic’ British brands now actually being produced overseas, it’s not as easy as it should be!
We’ve found a great website though which is packed with useful information about those genuinely ‘British’ brands, and superb examples of UK craft and manufacturing. It’s at: www.makeitbritish.co.uk
Every product referenced on the website has assured provenance - authentic, skilled and crafted using the finest materials - right here in the UK. You’ll find a comprehensive directory of large and small suppliers; from well-known brands to tiny artisan suppliers, all offering a wonderful diversity of products, gifts and services for you to enjoy.
And by buying British-made goods, you’re helping to keep fast-fading skills alive in our country, and support home-grown talent. In an age of economic strife, that aim is more compelling than ever.
