You may have heard our exciting news already, but if you haven't, then here's the perfect opportunity to share that we're now live on Crowdcube.
As you know, we're passionate about regenerating craft industries around the world, and celebrating the skills of master craftspeople that have been passed down through generations. Our mission is to continue supporting these heritage industries in Stoke-on-Trent, where our story began; in Slovenia, the home of our incredible glassblowers; and beyond.
Words cannot do these skills justice, so please do take a look at the video below of our teams in action!
You're likely to have some questions, which is why we've pulled together our top FAQs in the hope that you have all the information you need to invest. However, if we haven't covered any burning questions below, please don't hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be delighted to help.
What is Crowdcube and how do I invest?

Why should I invest?
As well as having a share of our business, investors will also receive some fantastic rewards including products from our bone china, JR and cut crystal collections, discounts, as well as VIP event tickets, and more. You can find more information on these rewards on Crowdcube here. We are also EIS approved so tax relief is an option for our investors (you can read more about this here.)
What are we planning to do with the investment?
We are looking to raise £250,000 to help with the creation of four new collections this year, as well as the expansion of our global reach within retail, hospitality as well as direct to consumer. This ultimately means we can bring you more of what you love already.
How is the business doing so far?
We launched our brand in 2013 when the Reflect collection was born. Richard visited Stoke-on-Trent to find a manufacturer to make the first teacups - he fell in love with The Potteries and the history of British ceramics. Fast forward a few years and we’re growing fast, with thanks to your ongoing support. See below some of our key achievements to date:
- Average growth 85% over last 4 years
- £2.5m sales to date
- 500+ pieces of media coverage since 2013
- 125 active B2B customers in 15 countries - Including Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford
