Poppy Treffry

Poppy’s products are hand made in sunny Cornwall. They’re about finding something unique and beautifully made, the perfect gift or a treat for yourself.

Treasured by their owners, each of our products tells a story, and puts a spring in your step – a little tingle of owning something lovely!

Poppy is an award-winning designer and author of two books on freehand machine embroidery. Her quirky products come direct from her sketches of everyday life in Cornwall. Through her trusty 1930s Singer sewing machine her little drawings spring to life and become bags, tea towels, purses tea cosies and lots more.

Now we can’t lie, Poppy doesn’t make everything anymore. But she does know exactly who does – and how they like their tea! Having set the company up on her own in 2004 she now works with a gorgeous team of ladies throughout Cornwall who cut, sew, package and sell everything she designs.

Poppy’s products can be found in boutiques, galleries and gift shops through the UK, USA, Europe and Japan.

What are shops saying about us ?

"Beautiful British Designs have helped me discover new designers that I think I would have otherwise missed. They have gone out of their way to help me and I find them very trust worthy and efficient to work with."

Steph Proudly

"Beautiful British Designs offer a great service for an independent shop owner like me. They help me find high quality products from UK designers that I would not have usually seen. I am now stocking Penny Lindop thanks to their service."


"I've been following Beautiful British Designs for a while now and am so pleased I did so. As a retailer I'm constantly looking for new and unusual products that I might not see at the zillion trade shows I visit every year. They feature so many small and interesting designers that something always catches my eye."

"I went straight to your website and love what I see! Just setting up my shop so early days and fully stocked and good to go. But I am so glad you found me and I will be in touch with several of your designers. Really interesting stuff."
