About Us

Welcome to The Brown Box. 

The Brown Box is a small family run business in Loftus, a small town in North Yorkshire, established in 2021. 

Our ethos is to offer an exciting range of beautiful eco-friendly gifts. Many of our gifts are made from recycled materials, thus reducing waste and damage to our planet, stocking zero waste products where possible. We are also placing a greater emphasis on sustainability with products manufactured from Bamboo, recycled glass, and recycled plastic. Where possible we reuse packaging to reduce our waste. We take great time and pride in researching our products and suppliers to ensure they meet the high standard that we, and our customers expect. We work with a number of independent suppliers both locally and across the UK to help achieve our vision with the aim of becoming more eco-friendly and more sustainable as we grow.

In our 'For Her' collection you will find a range of products which are vegan friendly and are formulated and handcrafted with respect for the natural environment. Many of our handbags are from Sixton London with exterior linings made from recycled polyester (rPet), a material made from recycled plastic bottles.

In our 'For Him' collection you will find some beautiful unique one of a kind Botanica Wooden Watches. Each watch is made from a sustainable wood source and is designed in the UK. For each purchase a tree is planted, therefore giving back to our environment and protecting it for future generations.

So, whether it is a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself (go on you deserve it) please take a look around, we hope you like what you see!

Our business has expanded over the past 2 years and we now have a physical gift and coffee shop located in our hometown, Loftus. We ensure all our tasty treats and coffee are sourced locally. All our coffee comes from Baytown Coffee Company (just outside Whitby) They are a family run business nestled on the North Yorkshire Coast, roasting coffee daily to ensure customers receive the best fresh roasted coffee. Our tasty bakes come from the incredibly talented Jenny Wren's Bakehouse. Jenny is simply fantastic at what she does and she never fails to impress us with her moreish tasty treats. 

Not only do we sell gorgeous gifts, the best coffee and tasty treats we are now a licensed premises. This means you can call in after 12 noon and enjoy a drink with friends or buy some fantastic locally brewed beers to take away. We currently stock beers from Micklow Brew Co Loftus, Talking Tides Marske and Twisted Peel Pickering.

Throughout the year we also host a number of creative workshops. Some of the events include: polymer jewellery with Moon and Jewel, Felt Pumpkins with Felty Foxx, Pop Art Painting with Jo Pickering.
