Buy British?

by sw on February 7, 2012

The summer press previews are in full swing, and there are no prizes for guessing that with both the home Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee coming up, both Union Jacks and all things royal and vintage-themed for the home are plentiful.

An investigation in the Daily Mail found that 91% of the London 2012 souvenirs were made abroad with two-thirds of them coming from China.

If you’d like to support British manufacture and design while indulging in a little light celebratory fervour, how about supporting a traditional British industry? Emma Bridgewater has its own factory in Staffordshire where these Diamond Jubilee ceramics – along with other designs – are made, helping to keep alive a traditional British industry.
