Tell us about Prestwich Collection.

Prestwich Collection, or a version of it, has been brewing in my mind over the last few years. I’ve worked in e-commerce and I also have a Masters degree in cultural heritage specialising in curatorship. Both of these are passions of mine along with being obsessed with all aspects of lifestyle and design. I wanted to spend my days doing something about which I am truly passionate, so I put all my skills together and founded Prestwich Collection!

What makes this online shop different?

Prestwich Collection essentially represents a lifestyle that promotes being surrounded by the things that inspire and enrich your daily life.
