Crafty is a small family run business run by Alan and Maria Gray based in Dundee, Scotland. Alan was originally a slater to trade, but was pensioned off due to ill health ( dizzy spells!). To pass the time he started making wooden plaques for our two children, that lead on to friends asking for name plaques for their kids. With both of us keen artists, we realised there could be a niche in the market for personalised childrens wall decorations. That is when we got the idea of trying to make it work as a business.
Once we had made enough differnt samples, we started off by having a few craft parties for friends. Our next step was to target local shops specialising in quality children's wear. We also approached the art and design company 3D/2D, and started doing the craft fair circuit around Scotland. Our crafts have really taken off,we've never looked back.
