I went to Ph Factor on Regent's Park Road in Primrose Hill, a sweet little independent shop that is well stocked with a range of luxury toiletries, bathroom products, nightwear, gifts and vintage furniture - the stock changes frequently and it's a great place to look for presents (Valentine's Day, anyone?!). Ph Factor's got a good range of British designer-makers:
Catherine Tough - last blogged about here - makes knitted hot water bottle covers, scarves, and heart-shaped lavender bags in her studio in North London. Her pieces are available in an array of edible colours.
Heyland & Whittle - last blogged about here -is based in Surrey. They handmake a range of soaps using the traditional cold-pressed method using essnential oils, herbs and spices to make sulphate and paraben free products.
Angel Vintage Home Accessories are handmade in Britian using vintage linen and antique buttons.
