About East of India
East of India was started in England by John Ayris and Anne Spratling in 1991. John had travelled extensively while Anne had studied fashion and textile design at Canterbury Art College. On a trip through Asia in the early nineties they met a talented man who had a beautiful wooden pig for sale, hand carved from a tree he had grown himself. They bought the pig and several other pieces and took them home as gifts for friends and family. The gifts were so well received and demand for them so great, they decided to start their own business introducing these beautiful handmade goods to the UK — and East of India was born. A small range of products was developed and their first consignment was brought to the UK and distributed to local shops, many of whom are still their customers.
