6 Reasons to Buy Local and Artisan

At artisan lane, we champion local designers and producers. Here are 6 reasons why it makes a positive difference to buy local and artisan.

artisan lane supports local British designers and producers

  1. Boost the local economy – research on spending by local authorities shows that for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business 63p stayed in the local economy, compared to 40p with a larger business
  2. Ethical – buying more locally and in season, reduces food miles (also contains more nutrients and less packaging) and when it comes to gifts, the smaller local artisan is likely to choose more ethically sourced materials
  3. Better Quality – artisans are passionate about their creations and they will source higher quality materials
  4. Unique to the area – by buying local products, you are championing, artists, designers, food producers and growers unique to your area
  5. Support British entrepreneurs – by buying from smaller designers and artisans you are fostering the next generation of designers and retailers
  6. Quirky and different gifting – quirky and one-off items are a major plus. Give your friends or relatives a handmade gift and it will be unique compared with anything they already have
