The Curated Collective Co

About The Curated Collective Co

The Curated Collective is a carefully chosen edit of mostly British makers & designers, alongside an ever growing collection of designers from across Europe. You'll find new and emerging design-led brands as well as more established names. We work with partners who strive to create something new and interesting, while remaining sustainable, forward-thinking and ethical. We believe that it's important for businesses to stand for something, which is why we look for our partners to tick certain boxes in the way they work and source their products. This might mean their products show 'Authenticity & Personality', they might focus on 'Sustainability & Tech' in their design and production methods, or they could be championning themes of 'Inclusivity & Awareness'. Whatever their focus, we want to promote, support and shine a light on these amazing business owners, who are all following their dreams in a positive way. We call it 'Shop with Purpose'...

Our Team

Set up by Ian McKenzie, The Curated Collective started life as a family affair during lockdown in 2020 , incorporating his daughters Kate & Becky, and wife Hilary - a blended family whose ages range from 21 to 73. With backgrounds spanning Psychology, Ceramics, Marketing & PR, Retail, Events and even The Military, we found ourselves living in the same house for the first time. With our respective careers on a pandemic-related hold, we looked for something we could all get involved with and the seed for The Curated Collective was sown. Things have changed since, with Becky finishing university and moving away to start a new career and us opening our first bricks & mortar store in West London in December April 2021. But Ian and Kate are still very much involved - with Ian as the business brains and Kate driving the brand ethos and its curation, always on the look out for interesting gifts and new ideas.
