Autumn Fair highlights sustainable and British-made brands

Autumn Fair will offer a showcase of British and sustainable brands at the next show with Made in Britain and Sustainability trails to guide visitors as they navigate the show. 

From 1 – 4 September, the NEC in Birmingham will come to life with over 800 brands presenting their latest collections for retailers to add an injection of seasonal newness during retail’s peak buying period.

Soraya Gadelrab, event director at Autumn Fair said: “The desire for British-made and sustainably produced products continues to grow and are especially popular for the festive gifting season. We’re delighted to see so many brands making a difference and look forward to presenting them to you in September.”

Widdop & Co has launched its Now or Never Studios offering personalised products for your business which are all finished in the UK and will also showcase its sustainable Bambino wooden toys.

Kids, Toys & Play brands have been edited into the Gift destination and feature a host of British and sustainable brands. Consciously crafted from eco-friendly wood and silicone, Bigjigs Toys’ 2024 collection is rooted in sustainable play, the latest line-up joins the brand’s award-winning Simply Scandi collection and features stacking toys, shape-sorting puzzles, sensory activities, educational toys, and pretend play sets.

Liz Ireland, founder and managing director of Bigjigs Toys, said: “A lot of thought and detail has gone into the design and craftsmanship of these new lines. Our talented product designers have spent months developing each item from the root idea to a product we know children will love – and Autumn Fair is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase the ranges to new and existing customers.”

Look out for Orange Tree Toys, the home of bright and stimulating FSC-certified (FSC C167936) wood toys for young children. Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2025, the company is run by two sisters, Anuja Wilson and Lamani Simons. The toys are made from FSC-certified wood, with no plastic and recyclable packaging.
