Dundee Made


8 September 2018

We've always loved supporting and championing local design in DCA shop, from stocking work by graduates of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design to collaborating with Scottish design studio Fun Makes Good on our DCA merchandise range. Now we're making it even easier to spot the work of local designers and makers on our shelves with Dundee Made. Our new bright red logo will sit beside products that have been designed and/or made right here in Dundee. Whether you're new to the city and looking for a special souvenir or you want to find the perfect gift with a local connection, we're here to help. 

From jewellery and silk scarves to cards and tea towels, we have a beautiful selection from some of the city's most talented designers. Let us introduce you...
