For over 20 years East of India has been supplying beautiful and wonderfully inspired giftware to shops throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. East of India is passionate about every detail. The range is extensive and includes stationery goods, ceramics and textiles.


East of India was started in England by John Ayris and Anne Spratling in 1991.  On a trip through Asia in the early nineties they met a talented man who had a beautiful wooden pig for sale, hand carved from a tree he had grown himself. They bought the pig and several other pieces and took them home as gifts for friends and family. The gifts were so well received and demand for them so great, they decided to start their own business introducing these beautiful handmade goods to the UK — and East of India was born. A small range of products was developed and their first consignment was brought to the UK and distributed to local shops, many of whom are still their customers.


Today, all East of India products continue to be designed with love and care at their studio in England. They have developed some wonderful resources to help craft their designs using traditional skills passed down through the generations. In fact, today East of India supports not only that original talented man but his family and friends. It’s the skills of these craftsman and others that give East of India products a distinctive and unique quality.


East of India produce a unique collection that touches people, brings smiles and celebrates the good things in life.
