Aerende (a-ren-day) An Old English word meaning care or message.

Aerende is a lovingly sourced collection of handmade items for your home. All of our products are created in the UK by people facing social challenges. Produced in low-volume batches and designed to improve with age, each purchase from our range of ethical homewares directly supports and provides opportunities for our talented makers.

Our range will enhance your home, yes, but it also treads lightly on the world beyond your door. Hence our strapline of life-improving homewares. By uniting heritage skills with environmentally sustainable materials and ethical business practices, each limited-edition item exemplifies our commitment to beauty, utility and integrity. Welcome to our world.

His ability to understand my business model and aesthetic while applying his expertise to try and come up with solutions to issues we’d found challenging was really inspiring. Particularly helpful were his suggestions around efficiency.”
