Design & Source returns to Autumn Fair


Design and Source will return for Autumn Fair 2022

Where ideas become great products.

Design & Source, originally called Sourcing, brings the international market to the UK along with ethical and sustainable manufacturers from all over the world to one unique destination. The Design & Source sector combines 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.


Opportunities within Design & Source

The only international sourcing platform of its kind in the UK, Design & Source is also the destination for visitors looking to grow or start their own white label offering, with direct access to key fabricating regions without the hassle of travelling overseas.
