When we started The Shop Floor Project five years ago one of our main objectives was to support struggling British manufacturers. Over the years we have found incredibly talented people who, in their small factories,back alley studios and converted garages, produce high quality and desirable objects.
Our growing collection of UK made goods include wallpaper which is printed in one of the last great paper factories in the Midlands, linens printed in Manchester and silk scarves produced in Nottingham.
To celebrate the growing support of items made on these shores we have launched Made in England china.
Produced in one the last remaining factories in Stoke-on-Trent these traditional shaped objects, have a striking plain ‘blank’ glaze and printed with an over-sized Staffordshire back stamp.
Whilst the elegant shape of the teapot and cake plate could easily be pictured in Lyons tea room, the bold graphic stamp brings them bang up to date and proudly celebrates the industrial heritage of the country.
