Daines Atelier are launching The Indie Guide in partnership with Blog with Lola and Yousef al Nasser. We have come to raise the profile of creative businesses and shout out about supporting independents.

The Guide will feature 40+ businesses from across the globe who are focused on being sustainable and transparent. We are trying to bridge the gap between makers and stockists. Imagine it as an image-focused directory for brands to advertise and get noticed by the right people!

This year Christmas will be like no other. With the uncertainty of lockdown and the added worry for the future of local small businesses. As a result, We have created an alternative to shopping. Away to support the independent businesses, and stockists who will undoubtedly struggle this winter. 

In conclusion, Most people are unsure of the number of independent businesses which surround them locally. unlike the big corporations who can invest in mass advertising and afford to take part in publications. Sadly, most smaller independents don’t have the same luxury.

Luckily, this is where The Indie Guide steps in!
