It all starts with Master Craftsmanship, Tradition and Richness of an Enduring Culture.
James Lloyd is a curated marketplace for hand-picked, handmade products.
At James Lloyd, we curate products influenced by contemporary design aesthetics, deep-rooted artisanal values and functional sensibility.
Our craft practices carry within them an amalgamation of cultural practices, values of sustainability, and the creativity to innovate.
Our products emanate an expression of a value which transcends the monetary exchanges to reveal something more precious, rarer, more difficult to find. It stands to reason that when we feel emotionally connected to the story behind an item, we’re more likely to keep it for longer, take care of it and repair it when broken, rather than growing bored and quickly casting it aside.
It enforces our convictions that behind every James Lloyd product lies a personal story.

Sourcing Indigenous Products
The regions we source our our products from have a long and unique history of art, with several indigenous crafts and practices passed down across generations of artisan communities.
Keeping Heritage Alive
Many of these artisans today face a struggle for survival, competing against the cheap, rapidly produced products of the modern age. Losing these ancient practices to modern manufacturing and production means losing an important aspect of our heritage.
