Made In B has been an idea for many years. My interest came about during my quest for products that were only made in Britain. Through my many adventures travelling from one end of Britain to another, I found myself meeting inspired artisans and discovering a huge variety of quality products made by companies and family-run enterprises keeping traditional heritage craft practices alive. Their fascinating tales and commitment to British craftsmanship was extraordinary. Having grown up in a business environment and reassured of my aspirations and entrepreneurial strengths – gained from the hard-earned lessons of pursuing a PhD – supplemented by a deep conviction of social purpose and responsibility, Made In B was thus conceptualised in 2018.
The identity behind Made in B is seated around three countries to which I have a close attachment and association – Britain (where I live), Bharat (the Sanskrit name for India, my ethnic connection) and Bhutan (to which I have a personal attachment since my childhood). As someone with profound regard for and sense of belonging to these cultural entities, and with deep-rooted personal values of social responsibility and ethics, the Made in B venture was developed with the aim to promote artisans/manufacturers and their products, as well as the local ecosystems within these regions and help create a positive impact on society.
It is my hope that this platform will act as a source for those seeking exquisite, high quality gifts and products made exclusively in Britain, Bharat and Bhutan.
