Wherever I travel in the world, I make the effort to buy locally made souvenirs and support local people. At the very least I make sure I buy a gift that is actually made in the country I am visiting.
Made in Britain – Made in the UK – UK Made – British Made – Made in UK.

My website “ukmade” is about celebrating British manufacturing and helping you source British made goods. It has many recommendations of quality products made in the British Isles.
Manufacturing in the UK allows companies to control supply, guarantee quality, offer flexibility and to be ethical and environmentally sound.
You and / or your company or the company or organisation you work for can support British companies and British jobs and be environmentally friendly (by reducing your carbon footprint through reducing the miles goods are transported) by buying British.
Why not make a conscious preference to buy British? You may have to look that bit harder (lots of goods on the High Street are foreign made these days), but Britain still makes most things. I hope this website will be of some assistance in your search to find not only British designed but actually British manufactured goods. You’ll also much information on the internet generally, but a word of caution. There’s a tendency amongst many firms to claim British heritage in such a way that it misleadingly implies manufacture in the UK. I’m sure you won’t be fooled by this, but do take care to ensure what you are buying really is manufactured in the UK.
Fly the flag! Buy British.
