The Best and Most Beautiful Handmade Wares: Design-Nation at Top Drawer ss21

Design-Nation is delighted to return yet again to the January edition of Top Drawer London. London’s premier trade showcase for interior product, giftware and homeware is this time in virtual format, styled as Top Drawer On Demand and packed with live design features. As usual, Design-Nation will present a group of superb and original designer/makers who are creating the best handmade products for homes and gifts.

The Design-Nation network includes some of the most acclaimed and innovative designers and craftspeople across the UK. Our nine exhibitors for the ss21 edition bring a selection of high quality objects encompassing ceramic, jewellery, leather, textile and wood; these artworks, fashion accessories and homeware span a wide variety of styles, incorporating both contemporary and traditionally-inspired artisan techniques and sensitive choices of materials. Our exhibitors are: BAKKA and Majeda Clarke (knitted and woven textiles respectively), Carin Lindberg, Lucy Spink and Mari Thomas (jewellery), Caroline Egleston (ceramic tiles), Linescapes (illustration-based products), Sally Burnett (wooden vessels) and Wolfram Lohr (leather goods for home and wear).

Exhibition Producer Helen Kemp says. “Design-Nation has been bringing great design and product to Top Drawer’s ‘Craft’ showcase ever since the launch at Earls Court in 2014. This trade show attracts the most discerning buyers from both major retailers and exclusive boutiques and has always been an excellent marketplace for our members to present new and established designs. We have worked hard to adapt quickly to the new virtual world of fairs and shows, and are confident that the team at Clarion Events will yet again create a great environment that facilitates dialogues, sales and commissions.”
