The Design Caribbean Pop-Up Shop will be the home for six regional firms as they present their range of diverse products to trade and consumers. Located in the historic former Pickfords Stables, Camden Market is the ideal setting and opportunity for visitors to see a collection of the Caribbean’s leading contemporary designers, who use indigenous techniques to create contemporary products across three core categories.

Participants of the store include jewelery and accessory makers Crystal Forms from Barbados and Haiti Design; handmade bags from Maya Bags from Belize; REECII from St. Kitts and Nevis; and BAUGHaus Design Studio and Khadabra in Harmony from Jamaica, both of whom offer home accessories with lighting, ceramics and art products.

The Design Caribbean Pop-Up Shop comes ideally during the busy Christmas shopping season when London is bursting with tourists and locals looking for the ultimate gifts for their loved ones.

Design Caribbean is a programme of the Caribbean Export Development Agency, and funded by the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) Regional Private Sector Development Programme, which the Agency is currently implementing.
