Saltaire Village is unique in its appearance, having been built to house the mill workers of Salts Mill. The whole village was constructed at the same time, giving it the feel of walking into a time capsule. One of the ways to enjoy the intriguing design of the town is by strolling round the independent shops. Discover designer boutiques, vintage clothes, arts, crafts and a quirky yet charming independent gift shop called Radstudio.
A beautifully thought-out colour palette that draws your eye around the room
Within walking distance from both the train station and Salts Mill, Radstudio’s colourful and welcoming shop floor is filled with homeware, stationary, jewellery, accessories and baby items that would make the perfect gift for a loved one. Described as a “design-led lifestyle shop” the word design cannot be emphasised enough; every item in the shop is chosen with purpose and has something intriguing about it.
The selection of cards in Radstudio are all handpicked and feel that touch more personal than your average greetings card. They can work perfectly with one of the ceramic pieces in the home section. The deft designs of the homeware could be a perfect present for yourself, a breath of fresh air in your kitchen. Perusing the items is as much fun as buying them. The shop has a beautifully thought-out colour palette that draws your eye around the room whilst you’re looking, removing the stress from gift shopping.
Radstudio’s owner Gina offers her expert eye for modern design with a personal shopper service. You can send over a brief for Gina to work with and she will compile a perfectly complementary set of gifts from the wide selection in Radstudio, for you to choose items from. There is no pressure to buy, the service aims to make gift buying easier for those tricky to buy for individuals.
