Timeless, handmade English crystal
mydeco.com in conversation with Ed Pickard from Dartington Crystal
What's the ethos behind your brand?Since 1967 we have nurtured a passion for simple contemporary design and well made products to be used and enjoyed.
Where do you find inspiration for new collections?The unspoilt natural beauty and environment of North Devon makes it a great place to get creative. Every Dartington piece is an inspired thought of our in-house design team, today many of our most popular selling design collections first came to life in the 1960's and 70's.
Can you explain a little more about how you make your products?Much of our range continues to be hand crafted in our Great Torrington factory, nestled in the hills of North Devon. Dartington is now the only crystal brand still producing in the UK. Our factory fulfils all our crystal collections and delivers on corporate projects meeting their exacting and superior requirements of the world's most renowned companies is testament to the unique hand crafting skills that Dartington has nurtured and developed in England since 1967.
