British Made Diaries and Calendars – Please choose a British made diary

A proper paper diary is silent and unobtrusive in use; it has no batteries to go flat; it doesn’t break if you drop it or tread on it; it helps you remember things because you have actually written them down; you can write in it during meetings and so on (when your smart phone will be outside or turned off!); and things don’t get mysteriously deleted. There is the risk of losing your paper diary of course, and unlike a smart phone will not require a passcode, which is something to bear in mind.

When you are getting your next diary, planner or calander please choose a British made one. Before buying, check the inside or back cover and see where the diary you are looking at is actually made (printed and bound).

The Tube seat fabric is known as moquette, a mix of wool with a small percentage of polyester, and well known for its hard wearing, durable, fire resistant and not-showing-the-dirt qualities, is still woven in Yorkshire. You can buy dog collars and coats using the fabric at the London Transport Museum, as well as furniture, cushions, technology cases, bags, handbags, key rings, wash bags, etc made using moquette. These are made in England by Matt Fothergill using moquette fabric. Whilst a lot of stuff in the London Transport Museum Shop is made in China, they do stock a very good range of UK made products too – http://www.ltmuseumshop.co.uk/moquette.html
