An independent creative collective of makers and artists, uniting the talents of eight individuals from the sectors of design, art, fashion, home-wares and carpentry.
The Cove believe that small businesses can make a big difference. Their shop is as eco friendly as possible, all packaging is recycled and/or compostable and many of them use recycled or up-cycled materials to create their products. Often these materials are sourced from charity shops or plucked from recycling bins, so just by purchasing their products you will be having a positive impact on the environment, supporting local small businesses and donating to charity!
The Cove has been drawn together by a shared penchant for earth-happy creations and hope that – by offering the people of Bristol sustainably sourced, eco friendly, hand crafted beautiful things to have in the home, and to wear – they can help make the transition to becoming an Earth conscious consumer easier.
