ABOUT THE PROJECT
With the hectic Christmas season approaching wind down at the Winter Market, a curated shopping experience made up of over 40 artists, makers, designers and publishers.
Ranging from books, magazines, cards, prints, homeware, ceramics, jewellery, stationary, bags and clothing, our products are handpicked to combine quality, sustainability and a focus on the local. Find lasting gifts with meaning, rather than having another landfill Christmas.
In the UK alone we create 30% more waste than usual during the festive period.
Each year, the UK spends a combined total of around £700 million on unwanted presents. In 2017, it was estimated that 114,000 tonnes of plastic packaging would be thrown away. 227,000 miles of wrapping paper is thrown away each year – that’s enough to stretch to the moon. In light of this, we’re making the push to become more sustainable.
The Winter Market features products from:
Anorak Magazine, Bel Burkhill, Beneficial Shock, Bloom Magazine, Chie Hosaka,Chloe Hall Illustration, Claii Jewellery, Constance & Clay, Conquista Magazine,Counterpoint Magazine, Critically Endangered Socks, Ding Ding Designs, DizzyInk, Do Books, Dot Magazine, Funhouse, GX Designs, Hannah Waldron, Exaireo Makers, HandMadeMistrys, Jackie Berridge, Jenna Lee Alldread, Just MonoStudio, Koko Otto, Lily Rowles, Lost In Magazine, Loubijoux, MacGuffin Magazine, Meg Bonser, Mr P’s Pots, The Pickle Club, Pop Press, Printer Johnson, Robinscroft Interiors, Rolling Roses, The Smallish House, Tracey Meek, Twin Pines, plus more to be announced.
