First of March is the luxury online destination dedicated to sharing the exquisite craftsmanship of Wales with the world. Founded by Ruth Davies in 2019, First of March showcases makers from a range of craft disciplines: from award-winning, international names to up and coming talents who are fast becoming the makers to watch in the design space.
First of March was built with three core Welsh values in mind - Hiraeth, Cynefin & Hwyl. Together, they represent the creativity, storytelling and connection each of our makers brings to life through their works.
Our mission is to drive the celebration of contemporary Welsh craft on a global scale. With every purchase made, you are investing into the heart of Wales, supporting the social, economic and cultural sustainability of our communities. We offer a complete range of options, from bespoke, commissioned pieces to made to order and stock items.
Our makers are maintaining the tradition of creativity and innovation from Wales and we respect them tremendously. We are humbled by the trust they place in us and by the incredible talent that we have found across Wales and all craft disciplines.
First of March is more than a business: we are a brand with a heart and vision for Welsh craftsmanship to make an impact and engage global audiences with stories that inspire positivity and connection.
First Of March was built with these three values always in mind.
