our story.

Patina champions slow craft and sustainability, born out of a growing concern with fast consumerism and the throwaway culture. We believe in buying less, but buying better. This may be salvaged homewares given a new lease in life. It may be contemporary goods handmade by independent makers. Regardless of age, we value craftsmanship designed to last. My pre-Covid job as a travel writer involved scoping out under-the-radar stores and creatives around the world. I launched Patina as a way of combining my love for travel and design. As a tiny brand, I can only stock a small selection of goods but I will regularly update the line. One day, you might discover bud vases crafted by a Barcelona-based ceramicist; the next, vintage terracotta olive pots from Turkey. We do have a shop in West Sussex, but the pandemic has postponed opening our doors. In the meantime, please do check out our website.

Thanks for all your support,
