One-stop-shop launched for UK-sourced quality natural stone home improvement products

Welsh Slate flooring, paving, rockery stones and aggregate now available online.


8 July 2019

UK Stone Direct is a unique new online shop designed to help home owners source a peerless range of exclusively-UK natural stone products for their internal and external improvements.

The new digital marketplace offers home improvers a variety of high-quality ethically-produced natural stone products sourced direct from the quarry, cutting out the middle men and leaving customers in no doubt as to where exactly in the UK the products have come from and how they were manufactured.

The introductory range from UK Stone Direct includes products for interiors such as kitchens and bathrooms, for instance natural Welsh Slate flooring tiles in two colours (blue grey and heather blue) and two finishes (smooth honed and the more rustic riven).

For exterior landscaping, the initial range comprises Welsh Slate paving slabs in two colours (blue grey and heather blue) and Welsh Slate aggregate in four colours (blue, grey, green and plum) and two sizes (20mm and 40mm), as well as plum-coloured Welsh Slate rockery stones.

Future additions to UK Stone Direct’s portfolio will include other home improvement products such as a walling range, edgings and other special decorative aggregates.

In addition to its products being obtained exclusively from the UK, UK Stone Direct sources products with ethics and the environment in mind.  Buying British, it believes, helps to keep employment in Britain and to ensure the centuries-old skills in crafting natural stone products are maintained and continue to be passed down the generations.

Focussing initially on Welsh Slate, which is widely recognised as being the highest-quality slate in the world, the site will give the customer confidence that they have made a low-carbon, environmentally-friendly and sustainable choice.

Co-founder Sally Finney said: “Other e-commerce sites can only offer very limited provenance for the stone to their customer but we can show customers the quarries their product comes from and the peerless heritage it draws upon.”
