Freight is a new brand which predominantly sells housewares and interior products. We are a mother and daughter partnership who have come together to work on this venture. We both come from a design and interiors background, Helene ran ‘Adamczewski’ a housewares shop in Lewes for over twelve years and Adele is a Part II trained architect. We both value good design and have always looked for high quality and functionality in the goods which we purchase. Our style is not based on trends or fashions but more on our own high expectations of how we expect an item to work and last. This search for quality and integrity has led us to develop our own brand.
Freight endeavours to provide customers with products that represent our four core values of provenance, quality, durability and functionality. Designing items that can be manufactured in the UK and not outsourcing our production needs to other countries is important to us.
We are passionate advocates of good design. We are aware that there has recently been a pendulum swing back towards a demand for goods produced in the UK. People are more aware of the provenance of goods and their responsibility to make more informed choices. Our designs and materials are considered and carefully sourced to ensure we are manufacturing items that are going to last well and wear even better.
We are working closely with a number of highly skilled crafts people across the manufacturing sector, to produce our own collection of products which represents Freight and it’s evolving identity. Our hope is that by working collaboratively we are also helping to preserve the tradition of small scale manufacturing in the UK.
