The New Craftsmen is the first sustainable multi-channel platform that enables fine British craftsmen and craftswomen to reach customers in the luxury goods market.
The New Craftsmen was founded in 2012 by Mark Henderson, Catherine Lock and Natalie Melton. Since 2010 we have toured the British Isles meeting and documenting the makers of traditional craft, and the innovators using skills, honed over centuries, in a contemporary way.
The result is The New Craftsmen: a network of makers who collaborate with us to showcase the finest materials, skills and craft products of the British Isles.
We seek out makers and iconic objects that are deeply connected to culture and place, we forge collaborations with designers and makers to offer a contemporary take on specific skills and materials, and we offer our customers a range of services that enable them to customize and develop bespoke pieces.
