Instantly recognisable, East of India gifts and homeware are renowned for their beautiful design, hand finished charm and attention to detail. East of India is one of our best-selling brands here at MOLLIE & FRED and we are proud to be one of their official online stockists.
East of India’s story began in 1991, when owners John Ayris and Anne Spratling were travelling through Asia and met a talented gentleman selling beautiful, handcrafted gifts. John and Anne bought some of the items as gifts for friends and family and they were such a big hit, they decided to start their own business introducing this beautiful handcrafted giftware to the UK – East of India was born!
Today, with 20 years of invaluable experience behind them, John and Anne are still at the heart of the company, offering enthusiasm and their vast experience to their skilled design team. East of India’s entire collection is designed here in the UK with love and care at East of India’s HQ in Folkestone and the business to this day maintains their close relationship with those original Artisans; through these partnerships the artisans and their families are still able to earn a living using traditional skills passed down through the generations. Their specialist skills give East of India products a distinct, unique quality which are loved by customers all over the UK, Europe and beyond…
There’s good news for the environment too, as for a number of years East of India has been involved with a tree-planting project in Indonesia. This means that wood used to create today’s East of India products, was a seedling planted a decade ago. When each tree is harvested, it is replaced with another, continuing this sustainable and environmentally friendly production chain.
So be sure take a look through this beautiful collection of East of India items, available to order online here today….we are sure you will find something you love. As well as this fantastic brand, we also have a large collection of gifts and homeware here at MOLLIE & FRED from Gisela Graham and Heaven Sends so don’t forget to take a look through these collections too for some additional inspirational.
