Dartington Glass, as it was known until the 1980s, was born in 1967 as one of the Dartington Hall Trust’s social enterprises in North Devon. It quickly became the most recognised manufacturer of simple yet functional glassware in the UK. Dartington's vision was built on a clean and simple design style, handmade using age-old techniques of Scandinavian roots. For over 50 years, many notable design figures have come together to use their passion and skill to grow the brand into what is now the only remaining factory scale producer in the country.
Today Dartington Crystal is not only the leading UK glass manufacturer but we are an award-winning visitor attraction in Devon too. We encourage visitors to take our Factory Tour to gain a behind the scenes look at how our skilled makers turn molten glass into items of true beauty. Our Visitor Centre hosts exhibits and information depicting the six decades of Dartington’s story. As well as supplying retail stores throughout the UK and export markets, we supply many leading businesses and luxury brands with bespoke and exclusive products.
