About Us

The Curated Collective is a small family business, run from our home in Lincolnshire. We love pulling together beautiful edits of lovely things and sharing them. We support businesses who are ethical, inclusive and forward-thinking, championing the idea of spending thoughtfully.


Our Ethos

Shop With PurposeWe believe that it's important for businesses to stand for something, which is why we look for our partners to tick certain boxes in the way they work and source their products. This might mean their products show 'Authenticity & Personality', they might focus on 'Sustainability & Tech' in their design and production methods, or they could be championning themes of  'Inclusivity & Awareness'. 

 

Whatevery their focus, we want to promote, support and shine a light on these amazing business owners, who are all following their dreams in a positive way.

Our Partners

Our suppliers are more than just that to us, they are our partners. We know their stories, we follow and support their journey - in fact Kate has worked with many of them from their early days trading. We also see that there's something rather special about what they design and make.
We work with independent makers, designers and small business owners, most of whom are designing or making their products in the UK. We do sometimes venture further afield when we find something that we think suits our ethos perfectly, but most of all, we love championing British Made & British Designed.


Our Team

Set up by Ian McKenzie, The Curated Collective is a family affair incorporating his daughters Kate & Becky and wife Hilary - a blended family whose ages range from 21 to 73. With backgrounds spanning Psychology, Ceramics, Marketing & PR, Film, Retail, Events and even The Military, we found ourselves living in the same house for the first time in 2020. With our respective careers on a pandemic-related hold, we looked for something we could all get involved with and the seed for The Curated Collective was sown.

Ian is the business brain and our Head Honcho - his military precision ensuring we dot the I's and cross the T's. Becky looks after our marketing and order fulfilment, while we use Hilary's pottery studio as our warehouse and stock some of her ceramics on the site. Finally, Kate's background in retail and marketing and her keen eye for what's on trend, mean we work with an incredible selection of artisans. She's our buyer and all round ops person, always on the look out for new products and the latest must-have gifts. If that's you, we'd love to hear from you - Get In Touch Here
