We have won the Award for Best Designed Site!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us on the Online Fashion Awards. We have just been told that we won Best Site Design over amazing sites like Victor & Rolf and Yves Saint Laurent. More than 40,000 people voted over the two weeks so lots of new people came to have a look at the shop.

It's a great end to a really successful year at The Shop Floor Project and we just wanted to say thanks for supporting the shop and all the designers we showcase.

Merry Christmas,
Denise and Samantha xx

Buy Handmade Gifts & Support Our Independent Designers

I always think someone has gone to so much trouble if I find a special little gift under the tree that, although might not be very expensive, shows that the present giver has gone out of their way to find something a bit unusual. This is guaranteed to make anyone feel pretty special!

By purchasing gifts from The Shop you are sure to find unusual gifts and in the process you'll also be supporting our homegrown design talent. All of our objects are made by independent designers who are busily working away in their hidden studios around the country, producing the most beautiful things. Here are our top picks of some of our favourite British designers which are available in The Shop and would make prefect gifts:

A favourite of ours, Natalie works from her East London studio making bags and purses which speak to the child in us - from her leather Penny Sweet Bags, Piggy Banks and Half Penny Coin purses each one is handmade from the softest leather and embossed with her logo. From £15

Based in rural Cornwall, Lee May's beautifully illustrated, ethical T-Shirts for both men and women always go down well. Perfect for those who like illustration and nature as they often feature stars, clouds, the sea, trees and wild animals! £25 each

Brighton based artist, Emma Harding, is a real find of 2009. Her unusual ceramics (which come in a box with a certificate) are genuine collectors items with only one of each made - you can read more about her here - from £30

Glasgow based textile designer, Hilary Laing, has had a great year. From being nominated for Vogue's Scottish Accessory Designer of the Year to being featured with artist Jeff Koon in US Glamour magazine. We are not surprised, her beautiful silk scarves are printed with bold graphics in strong colours - helping to re-invent the traditional silk scarf! From £12 - £50

Brighton based jeweller, Alice Eden, makes the most exquisite and delicate jewellery featuring flying birds on long elegant earrings, necklaces and charm bracelets From £40

This is just a tiny selection of designers we have in our Shop - Why not have a browse through for some last minute shopping and avoid the crowds on the high street? - We are sending orders right up until Tuesday 22nd December in the UK(please see below for details).
