Powell Craft was established in Cornwall, England in 1962 by William and Veronica Powell. It began as a family-run wholesale and retail business sourcing traditional handmade wooden toys from the Czech Republic and East Germany. For many happy years the family traded selling high-end homeware and gifts.
In 1980 a new market was developed with Victorian-inspired lace and linen products, ladies nightdresses, patchwork ,children's wear and nursery ranges . All the products were quintessentially English designs made from 100% cotton.
In keeping with the traditional handmade ranges for which Powell Craft has become renowned, it continues to this day to offer beautiful Victorian-inspired products made using natural materials, cotton ladies and children’s nightwear, fine porcelain, hand stitched needlepoint, scented English lavenders, hand quilted patchwork, linens and lace.
