Gift buying can be difficult – with dedicated online gift retailers focusing on quantity over quality and the small pool of British-made products. New UK brand DarbyMade’s aim is to become the go-to destination for authentic handmade gifts. DarbyMade is aiming to alsoupport the skilled craftspeople of Britain by offering a carefully curated selection of each maker’s highest quality items.
It’s not easy to enter the already oversaturated luxury sector and to create high quality gifts to be treasured. It is DarbyMade’s mission to celebrate traditional homegrown craftsmanship and support the best craftspeople to keep skills alive for future generations. DarbyMade does this by seeking out the most talented makers in the UK and handpicking a small, curated selection of their work. After spending 20 years advising and supporting other businesses, the founder of the brandPaul Jardine decided to create DarbyMade. With a huge number of influences and aspirations, Paul Jardine named the business after his grandmother who came from a generation that insisted on quality and goods that would last for years.
Establishing itself as the name that will be synonymous with quality, hand-crafted and thoughtful gifts, DarbyMade offers a full range of handmade products. These include silk ties weaved in a 225-year-old Suffolk mill, belts made from leather tanned using oak bark at the UK’s oldest tannery, and tablet stands made from original timber from HMS Victory. Luxury of the very highest quality.
