The Cutlery Commission
The Cutlery Commission is a multi-award winning British giftware brand set up by Katie Dobson, selling bespoke, personalised cutlery and silverware. From a small workshop in Gloucestershire, all of the cutlery is hand-stamped by a cheery gaggle of Mums known as ‘The Spoonettes’, who use industrial tools to indent each letter into the silver plate.
After winning ‘Gift of the Year 2013’ and being launched in John Lewis and Liberty London, this little cottage industry has gone from strength to strength and has been featured in numerous publications including The Guardian, Country Homes & Interiors and BBC Good Food.
With a rapidly growing customer database and international presence, The Cutlery Commission prides itself on being ‘the home of personalised cutlery’.
