Adra is launched!

Published: Thursday 13 November, 2008

Welcome to Adra! Adra, which is Welsh for ‘home’, is a brand new company dedicated to sourcing and selling gorgeous Welsh goods for you and your home. At Adra we believe that those who want to buy a Welsh product don’t necessarily want a red dragon or a sheep printed all over it.

Wales is full of excellent designers, craftspeople and producers, but very few of their unique goods are easily available, especially online. We have an impressive range of stylish homewares. We also have a kids section… and we couldn’t resist including some accessories too.

We know there’s a lot of beautiful things made here that deserve to be seen by a wider audience. All our products are carefully sourced from Wales, designed by Welsh designers or feature the Welsh language – and we only sell products that we’ve fallen in love with ourselves!

We have gifts and greeting cards for all occassions. If you’re in a hurry, use our gift finder. Just tell us who you’re buying for, what’s the occassion and how much you want to spend, and we’ll instantly give you some suggestions. Alternatively, buy a gift voucher and leave the decision to them.

We’ll also have a wish list available soon where you can create a list of all the things you’d love to have from our website. Unwanted gifts will be a thing of the past.

In addition to selling the products, our fully-bilingual website profiles the producers and features a section listing boutique-style accommodation across Wales, again in keeping with our vision of promoting a stylish, contemporary Wales free from the traditional clichés. Those intrigued by the Welsh script on some of the products may also appreciate our ‘Learning Welsh’ section!

We can’t wait to hear what you think. If you have any comments or recommendations, we’d love to hear from you. Even criticism is welcomed – we can only improve our service and range of products if you tell us what you want.
