Paula is an entrepreneur on a mission. She runs a beautiful bricks and mortar store in Battle, East Sussex where she tirelessly promotes all things British made. We are collaborating on a special Roundabout and Knatty Knitters feature in the store, BRITISH Design BRITISH Made until 9 September 2020. It has been great to work with Paula and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to quiz her about why buying British matters and her passion for environmental issues.
