The New Craftsmen celebrates Britain’s makers in all disciplines, and their collaboration with Burberry has led to a stylish refit of Thomas’s, the in-house eaterie
The New Craftsmen works with a selection of Britain’s finest craft makers to showcase the materials, skills and craft products of the British Isles. Founded in 2012 in Mayfair, The New Craftsmen currently represents a network of over 75 makers working in textiles, silverware, furniture, ceramics, jewellery, glassware and beyond. They showcase and sell a carefully selected range of products, limited editions and exclusive collaborations via the Mayfair shop and online.
The New Craftsmen present objects that are deeply connected to culture and place. The distinct position is to forge collaborations with designers and makers to give a contemporary take on specific skills and materials. From this they offer customers, interior designers and architects a range of services that enable them to customise, commission and collaborate on developing bespoke pieces.
“The company represents a vision of sustainable, real luxury, expressed through dedication to makers, materials, method and design.”
Burberry enjoys an ongoing partnership with The New Craftsmen. Located at Thomas’s, Burberry’s all-day dining and gifting destination, the collaboration celebrates British craft and creativity through a unique calendar of events, activities and exclusive products. And thanks to this partnership, Thomas’s updated interior was designed in close collaboration with The New Craftsmen to include new fixtures, spaces and a refreshed private dining area.
