Two entrepreneurs John Ayris and Anne Spratling collaborated together to establish East of India in 1991, to provide handcrafted gifts. The founders of the company traveled extensively and vested their capabilities in understanding and meeting the demands of their clients. The products designed under the East of India brand are designed with intricacy and delicacy and all products are handpicked in a workshop in Folkestone.
East of India is one of our favourite brands, and owners John and Anne have built their business on ethical and environmental values. Interestingly, their Folkestone office and warehouse uses solar power to generate more than half of their electrical requirements and East of India contribute to tree replanting sustainability scheme in Indonesia. They have also recently bought 22 acres of Kentish ancient woodland to safeguard its future. “Best of British design” is East of India’s mission and their flair for innovative and refreshing design remains unbeaten.
