Leading UK glass manufacturer Dartington Crystal has joined BHETA. Dartington Glass as it was known until the 1980s, was born in 1967 as one of the Dartington Hall Trust's social enterprises in North Devon. It became the most recognised manufacturer of simple yet functional glassware in the UK. Dartington's vision was built on a clean and simple design style, handmade using age-old techniques of Scandinavian roots. It remains the only remaining factory scale producer in the country.
Today Dartington Crystal is not only the leading UK glass manufacturer but also an award-winning visitor attraction in Devon. It supplies retail stores throughout the UK and export markets as well as providing leading businesses and luxury brands with bespoke and exclusive products.
Seema Grantham, BHETA's sector manager for housewares said, "Dartington is an historic brand with iconic status. It is ever expanding its beautiful range and I'm delighted that the company is joining BHETA."
