About the Brand
Dartington Glass, as it was known until the 1980s, was born in 1967 as one of the Dartington Hall Trust’s social enterprises in North Devon. It quickly became the most recognised manufacturer of simple yet functional glassware in the UK. Dartington's vision was built on a clean and simple design style, handmade using age-old techniques of Scandinavian roots. For over 50 years, many notable design figures have come together to use their passion and skill to grow the brand into what is now the only remaining factory scale producer in the country.
Dartington Crystal began in 1967 when a group of Swedish glassmakers brought their skills to rural North Devon. Working with the finest natural materials, these craftsmen soon became known for creating beautiful glassware to be used and admired.
Today, the company continues to provide elegant, simple designs in crystal and glass, and is now the only crystal brand still producing in the UK. With a contemporary and clean design style, Dartington combines the ultimate in functionality with eye-catching appeal to make it the perfect choice for your home or as a gift.
