Lancashire designers showcased at BOB North

Some of the best creative businesses from across Lancashire are part of a special designer showcase during the Best of Britannia (BoB) weekend.

BoB takes place from Friday 15 May to Sunday 17 May. It will breathe new life into the former Central Post Office building by creating a unique pop-up department store experience. BoB profiles a range of products reflecting the best from the UK, showcasing established and emerging talent from fashion, textiles, footwear, accessories, jewellery, cycling, motoring, home furnishings and much more.

Ed Matthews-Gentle from Creative Lancashire explained: "This is the first time that BoB has been held in the North of England. It's a prestigious event for the city.

"For three days during BOB North, we're bringing together established local creative businesses alongside the next generation of exciting new talent. We're delighted to be able to support some very talented people.

Exhibitors include Maybedaisy (textiles), Sophie Alice Hirsch (jewellery), Julie Miles (ceramics), Colette Halstead (glass) and Swarm Design (textiles and lighting).

Adam studied at the Bath School of Art & Design, before setting up initially as Adam Slade Interior Textiles. Several years after graduating Adam was selected to participate in the prestigious Crafts Council Hothouse 2014 programme - a development course designed to offer support and business advice to emerging designer/makers, run in partnership with Creative Lancashire.

Another company selected to take part in BoB North is Rossendale-based Deni-Deni (www.deni-deni.com) who make fine leather goods and furnishings. They are a second generation family firm using traditional methods. They work with major luxury brands and create bespoke pieces. Jenny Rutter, executive director of They Eat Culture and co-curator of the showcase, said: "Creative Lancashire have consistently supported makers and creators to show and sell their work to new audiences. There is a wealth of great design and creative talent on our doorstep, and around the region. The Creative Lancashire hub at BOB North is a way to take that talent out of the studio and into the heart of the city."
