A New Kind of Luxury: The New Craftsmen in London

March 21, 2014

Mark Henderson, Catherine Lock, and Natalie Melton (a trio whose experiences range from high street retail to the arts)  toured the British Isles for two years in search of the leading craft and design talent in the UK. Their mission? “To offer sustainable, real luxury, expressed through dedication to makers, materials, method, and design.” Their venture, called the New Craftsmen, is an online retailer representing more than 75 artisans, craftspeople, textile makers, ceramicists; during last year’s holiday season, they staged two pop-up shops, and they’re opening their first brick-and-mortar store at One Row in Mayfair in April.
