Why British Made?
WHY DO WE MANUFACTURE IN THE UK?
At Victoria Eggs supporting UK manufacturing and knowing exactly where our products are made, what they are made from and who makes them them is extremely important to us. You'll find 'Made in Britain' on every one of our products. This is our proud salute to all that makes Britain British.
We carefully select manufacturers from across the UK to make our homeware and gifts, down to the woven labels and swing tags you find on all our products.
The ink that we use to print the textiles is water-based which has virtually no impact on the environment and we ensure that all chemicals used in the cleaning processes are environmentally safe.
Our textiles are printed, hand sewn and finished by a family run business in Lincolnshire. They have been commended for their fair employment policy and for many years have been dedicated to employing staff with disabilities whenever possible. The woven hem labels and packaging for the textiles is also made in Britain.
FINE BONE CHINA
Our beautiful fine bone china mugs, jugs and egg cups are hand printed and decorated in a traditional English factory. The artwork for each mug is individually screen printed to create what is known as a ‘decal’, which is then skilfully hand applied to the mug and fired in a large kiln that bonds the design to the mug. They combine traditional skills with modern technology and delicate craftsmanship.
CARDS, WRAP & PRINTS
Our greetings cards are printed on the finest British made paper and these along with the gift wrap and prints are all printed on the finest FSC paper.
WHAT IS FSC PAPER?
The FSC's (Forest Stewardship Council) is an organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The FSC logo indicates paper which has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. By buying FSC you are helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come. It is even recognised by WWF as the “hallmark of responsible forest management”.
WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?
Organic cotton is grown using environmentally friendly techniques without using any chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Organic cotton is grown without any harmful chemicals, pesticides, or genetically engineered seeds. The majority of our tea towels are made from organic cotton.
