This Fresh New Homewares Brand Wants to Start a Revolution

The debut SS16 collection from The People’s Emporium?consists of “homewares for the people, by the people”…

Self-confessed homeware addicts Laura Fearnall and Claire Hamer-Stubbs teamed up to found new online store The People’s Emporium out of a desire to provide easy access to ethically produced contemporary homewares.

A PR mogul and sustainable sourcing manager for ASOS respectively, they came together?to create a stylish line of products that could be easily traced back to their makers – a task they refer to as “changing the face of the sustainable revolution”.
