the local craft collective

Alexandra Browne

Alexandra Browne struggled to find tiles for clients while running her own interior design practice. So, ‘I decided to paint them myself’, she explains. It was an immediate success and now tile-painting is Alexandra’s full-time job.

‘The homes I have lived in over the years have always been more than just the bricks and mortar,’ Alexandra observes. 'I think of them in the context of their area. So, it seems more than fitting that a home should have something of its surroundings grouted into its fabric.’

We've collaborated with design curator and advocate Barbara Chandler to identify and showcase fine craftspeople practicing near our London stores. Meet each of our makers and their locally-inspired designs.
