Where ideas become great products

Now in its’ second year at Autumn Fair, Design & Source (originally called Sourcing) brings the international market to the UK, along with ethical and sustainable manufacturers from all over the world to the one unique destination. The new Design & Source sector will incorporate more product types including home textiles, lighting, funky and contemporary gifts, artisan products, as well as tableware, kitchenware and flatware for catering and hospitality buyers. This is where a product’s journey starts. At the very source.
