British home and giftware company, My Gifts Trade, has joined forces with the Dutch home and lifestyle brand Urban Nature Culture, working to help bring this wonderful product range to more UK consumers.
Urban Nature Culture designs and sources a beautiful and on-trend range of home décor and kitchen products, all firmly wedded to the concept of the circular economy – using sustainable and recycled natural materials and employing generations of local artisans throughout the globe. My Gifts Trade will work alongside existing agent Sue Cottingham in order to serve the existing customer base as well as developing new opportunities for the brand, supplying customers from their warehouse in the North West of England.
Since the age of 19, Urban Nature Culture’s Anne Marie Hermans has been travelling the world, finding beauty and treasures in every corner of the planet. Ever inspired by inventive minds and the incredible products that can come to life from that, her travels always lead her to find new products, hidden gems and creative people, who inspire her for new collections to come. Curating ancient techniques and art, in harmony with nature, is one of the most important goals in her life.
Anne believes that taking care of the future of our world, nature and its inhabitants, can only be achieved by looking at ourselves: The change lies within ourselves. Step by step, UNC finds more ways to produce products in a sustainable way. Not just by paying fair wages to the talented craftsmen or honest dealers and companies who provide great products for our homes, but also by using new and planet-friendly sources, or secondary instead of new, raw materials.
“It is the obligation of brands and manufacturers to invest in the future and to be transparent about the way we produce our goods. That way, we wake up each morning with the best intentions – of helping each other and our world, to make the world a little bit better every day. Urban Nature Culture Amsterdam, for the love of our world”.
