Let me introduce you to Designed and Created – the brainchild of local fashion graduate Laura Martino.
Laura has been designing and creating for global brands for more than 25 years alongside being a Mum with a love (or obsession) of interior design and home restoration. She has now decided created an online shop that sells art and individual pieces for the home from a wide range of creative disciplines.
She will showcase the work of artists, designers and artisans and tell you all about them, so you have the opportunity to buy something that has been lovingly designed and created from a person whose story you understand.
Laura hopes you will find this a shop with a difference – a shop where you know exactly where your purchase has come from as well as who has designed and made it. A shop that’s about people, not production lines and a shop that helps you make your home as unique as you are.
If you want to support independent, sustainable art this year, you have come to the right place.
Browse the collection of ceramics, artwork, stationery, soft furnishings and more.
