We would like to Welcome you to our East of India Gifts Collection at Baroc! East of India Gifts was started by John Ayris and Anne Spratling in 1991. John had travelled extensively while Anne had studied fashion and textile design at Canterbury Art College.
Today all our products are designed with love and care at our studio in Folkestone and we still work closely with those original artisans. They now employ numerous other family members and friends to satisfy demand. With the support of our diverse customer base, which includes multiple retailers, mail order companies and small independent retailers, these artisans are still able to work together as family groups and earn a living using traditional skills passed down through the generations. Their skills give East of India products a distinctive, unique quality and we now have customers all over the UK, Europe and beyond.
The East of India team in Folkestone has also grown and evolved.
All of East of India’s products are designed in-house and from initial concept to final product, we are passionate about every detail. We offer an extensive range of seasonally inspired collections including stationery, ceramics, textiles and hand-carved wood sourced from natural materials.
East of India Gifts remains one of the most popular brands on our website, sourcing gifts from across the globe that are beautiful, authentic, and unique.
When we first saw the range, we immediately fell in love with it – fabulous ribbons, cards, gifts and homewares. The whole range is hand finished by craftsmen from around the world, using traditional methods, so they are wonderfully natural and rustic looking and fit in beautifully in any home.
Having stocked East of India in our high street shops since 2013, we offer over 400 different products, all available for immediate dispatch! We are the most comprehensive stockist of welsh to be found on the web, bringing you all the latest additions to the ever-growing range as well as personalised gifts, exclusive to Baroc.
