Albion Candle Co

We started making candles for many reasons; we love candles, scents, being creative, bringing joy to homes, happy customers and trying to do our bit for the planet.
Our candles are hand poured in Manchester and everything from choosing our scents to packing our deliveries is done by us. Our candles are made from 100% soy wax and we take a lot of care to ensure they are of the highest quality.
We highly encourage the reuse of our candle jars and offer a free reuse label with every full-size candle purchase (just add label to bag). We also love to support charities close to our hearts where we can. Currently, for every purchase of our Winter Hug Christmas candle, we will donate £2.50 to Manchester Mind.

Alpine Tones Illustration

I create nature inspired art using watercolour, graphite pencil and digital illustration. My main inspirations are the Swiss alps where I live, and also the ocean as I love diving. I am passionate about making eco-friendly choices, including not only my packaging, but the materials I create your artwork with. Through my art and attention to realism, I hope to inspire a little more love and appreciation for our beautiful planet. As well as art prints, I also offer bespoke commissions and pet portraits which are wonderful personalised gifts for any loved one.

Clara Castner

I create handmade porcelain ceramics for the home. All of my work is inspired by natural surfaces: rock surfaces eroded by time, bark, water. I want the surfaces to invite you to feel them, to touch the cool surface. I love to see the results of a glaze firing, and I am always in awe how the same glaze can be so different on each carving.
Christmas is my favourite time of year, as I love to decorate, and I am always looking at new decorations to make for each year. All of my decorations are made with recycled clay from all the carvings of my vases and tea light holders.

Kimmy Priggen

Capturing that all important ‘twinkle in the eye’ is what makes my art so popular. I have always had a passion for painting, particularly animals for my own pleasure and I’ve found that people really appreciate the way I focus on capturing the animal’s personality and character and really ‘bring them to life’. Recently I’ve taken it up more seriously since taking voluntary redundancy from my job as a diamond valuer in 2008. Although not formally trained, I have learnt from two exceptionally talented local artists with very differing styles, who have given me real insight and showed me how to take my art to another level.
I am fundraising for some animal charities that are close to my heart, particularly International Animal Rescue, to which I am very committed, and I enjoy painting for them. Profits from prints of the baby Orang Utan ‘Punk Baby’ all go to this charity as well as 10% of profits from ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Punk Sister’. I hope you enjoy looking at my art.

Read Wrap Recycle

Charlotte came up with the idea for Read Wrap Recycle when wrapping Elsie’s pass the parcel in newspaper, after finding the news pretty depressing, she thought it would be fun to have a newspaper that was fun to look at with the soul intention of being used as gift wrap. The best part was not only realising that newspaper is incredibly easy to wrap with, but that it is made of 100% recycled paper. The paper used in our papers is produced here in the UK, just 60 miles from the printing press. As a family we are passionate about the environment, we are helping to reduce the 50,000 trees* estimated to be cut down each year for the sole purpose of wrapping gifts. We also love supporting UK based industry and all our products are sourced here to keep our carbon footprint low.

Shamrock and Pearl

I’m Alex, the one-woman band behind Shamrock and Pearl.  I create woven home decor items and accessories such as wall hangings, coasters and bookmarks, although I’m always itching to try out new projects when I get the chance 
Shamrock and Pearl was launched in November last year during my maternity leave and the name is inspired by my husband (who is Irish) and my daughter (whose name means Pearl).  
There is a lot of texture and colour in my pieces, and you’ll almost always find a little sparkle added in there too! They are a tactile piece of art that will stand out beautifully in your home.  Generally my wall hangings are unique ready-made pieces, but I’m always happy to have custom orders and commissions, especially for the nursery items I make.  I sell through my Etsy shop, but happy to chat through Instagram DMs if you have any questions.
Everything is handmade with love and a little bit of sparkle – I genuinely love weaving and crafting and hope that comes through in everything that I make.

The Slow Lanes

Hey! I am Jazz, I’m an eco friendly, fashion loving designer from Weymouth, Dorset. I work from my home studio with my 2 furry cat baby’s. I have a degree in Fashion Design and several years experience working in the fast fashion industry. Over the years I’ve learnt about the environment and how damaging, and wasteful, the fast fashion industry is. Did you know 95% of textiles can be recycled? Yet every year, we continue to throw away our unwanted clothes (Even clothes only worn once.) they can then end up in landfill or be incinerated. But thats why we upcycle, for every ton of textiles that we can upcycle it prevents 20 tons of CO2 entering our atmosphere!
The Slow Lanes was born to create stylish and unique clothing, accessories and equipment to encourage mending and DIY, so we can all enjoy fashion but not at a cost to the environment. I want to help people live more sustainable and also come from a place of love, education and understanding. I want people to enjoy clothes, style and express themselves regardless of gender, race, size or age. I love upcycling for the endless possibilities but also its challenging limits as you have to problem solves and think out of the box! My customers feel special knowing that there items are one off and made with love!

Time For Me Teas

Hi, I’m Kate and I’m a herbalist living in Cornwall, I create my own range of organic loose leaf herbal tea blends, perfect to give you a moment to breathe, be present and recharge your energy.  All my blends are caffeine free and contain no added flavourings at all, I wanted to prove that it is possible to have delicious herbal teas that are also good for you too – luckily my regular customers agree! 
All my packaging is either fully recyclable or compostable and all single-use plastic free, the only item I have that contains plastic is my reusable Christmas Tea Bauble, just fill it with sweets or paper confetti once you’ve finished the tea!
If you love to try new tea blends then my Tea & Me Time Box is perfect for you, it’s a monthly subscription box which contains a full sized tea tin, a tea taster of a brand new blend (not yet launched in my shop), a sweet treat and a ‘me time’ treat too. Created to remind you to take a moment just for you, this is also perfect as a gift for a loved one too! But if you’d rather not commit to a monthly box, these are also available as gift boxes as a one-off purchase. The ‘me time’ treats range from wax melts, bath salts (can also be used in the shower), skin creams & balms, as well as candles, roll-on perfumes and luxurious bath oils. I also have two Festivitea Advent Calendars available, each contains 25 days of teas but one is a Deluxe version with added sweets!
