Many of the products made in the UK are made by hand, using skills that have been handed down through generations.

2. You are investing in something of quality that will last.

British made products may be more expensive but are often better made, meaning that you have lasting pieces for your wardrobe

3. You own something unique. 

Products made in the UK are produced in much smaller quantities than when made abroad, meaning that the pieces are limited and more exclusive.

4. You are buying something that doesn’t leave a huge carbon footprint.

Mass produced products are often flown into the UK from the other side of the world, leaving a massive carbon footprint behind it.

5. You are creating employment for British workers. 

Help to boost the British economy by keeping people in jobs here.

6. You are nurturing home grown talent.
