Why British Made?
PROUDLY BRITISH MADE
Everything we do proudly flies the flag for Great Britain, and is hand-crafted right here in the UK.
From Victoria’s designs (which are hand-drawn at her desk in Kingston, Surrey), to the bamboo in our tote bags, from our porcelain which is sourced from Cornish Clay, right down to the paper on our swing tickets, everything you buy from Victoria Eggs is proudly British-made and distributed.
Great British quality and craftsmanship is at the heart of who we are, and reflected in everything we do.
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.
