East London’s Female Entrepreneurs Countdown #Tell Your Story

We're celebrating some of East London's female-owned businesses – we meet Ilka Dickens and Julia Redgrove whose greeting card and print business, designing fun gifts for family, quickly grew into Urban Makers, a fully-fledged online store and creative community.

Founded on friendship and solidarity in motherhood, Urban Makers is now the go-to sustainable, ethical market and online shop for gifts, decorations and wares made in East London and beyond. Having survived lockdown they have now grown Urban Makers to be bigger and better than before. From partnerships with Old Spitalfields Market, to the British Red Cross, and now a permanent shop, Ilka and Julia’s community of makers continues to flourish. @urbanmakers_uk
