Celebrating and support the brilliant artisan makers, specialist manufacturers and suppliers that help make our products.
An important part of our mission is to preserve UK craftsmanship, help to rebuild British manufacturing and create new digital artisan opportunities and apprenticeships.
Made in Somerset
At Bonnie Binary, our products are made by a team of brilliantly talented artisans based in Somerset in the UK. I love overseeing every stage of production, firstly to ensure quality but also because I love to make too! It’s really rewarding meeting up with like-minded artisans, tweaking the designs and the making process so we can deliver the best possible products, together.
Today is the perfect day to celebrate the makers and suppliers at Bonnie Binary.

The AllsewnUp team in Somerset assembling the first products and the wonderful Jacky Puzey in her embroidery studios in Bristol.
Currently, I’m the only full-time member of the team but, behind the scenes, there is a brilliant team of artisans, consultants, advisers and creatives who all help bring the Bonnie Binary products to life!
Every small business represents so many others and I’d like to thank everyone for their support as we grow.
