British by Design is managed by Design Event, a not for profit organisation that promotes and supports designers to become innovative creative practices. By purchasing from the site you are directly supporting the designers we work with.
All products are well made with beautiful aesthetics and character, with many products by up and coming designers, therefore not widely available through other retailers.
Linked to each product you’ll find information on the designer who created it and when you make a purchase, the designers will dispatch your goods directly to you.
Purchasing from the site is an opportunity to support British creatives and to support the UK as a creative economy and world centre for innovative design.
Many of the products we showcase are sourced through the biennial Design Event Festival held in Newcastle upon Tyne. To find out more about the festival, visit www.design-event.co.uk.
