"IT'S ALL DONE IN THE UK AND IT'S ALL PACKED IN THE UK"
“I wanted to have a business that involved my art and that I could keep making because fundamentally I like making things, and I like printing, and I like cutting up paper, and the fact that you’ve then got something you can sell justifies it as well.”
“I’m based in Britain so I do all the design work here, my printer is British, as is all the paper suppliers, and the envelope and the cellophane packet are all done in the UK and it’s all packed in the UK.”

ORDERS FROM A MAJOR RETAILER AT SPRING FAIR 2016
Adorable Cushions has capitalised on the fact that people love animals and they identified a surprising gap in the market for animal shaped cushions. From an initial range of 20 designs, the company now has over 60 and is increasing the product range by branching into keyrings and door stops. Customers range from independent giftware shops to online retailers asking for bespoke ranges, to clients with very specific requests, including The Royal Household Cavalry and Longleat Safari Park.

The Jackie Brazil vision started in 2012. The aim was to create a new look, more adventurous in its use of vibrant colours and designs. The company creates handmade resin jewellery in Rio de Janeiro with each piece being ‘wearable art’ – lightweight with a fresh look that reflects the colour and happiness of Brazil’s lifestyle and attitudes. All the jewellery is made under Fair Trade conditions and the resin has particular properties that make it easy to clean and long lasting.
