Independent Design Collective is a craft based gift shop located in the vibrant area of Southville in Bristol, featuring and promoting designers and makers from the local area.  IDC is run by Chitra Tarling, the creative force behind Karve Design, itself a Bristol based craft and design business.

The shop features over 40 different designers and artists, and regularly updates its collection, so there is always something new to discover.


I have made the decision to temporarily close the shop to the public, until it safe to reopen. It has been a difficult dilemma for me as I want to do what is best for my customers and my health. After hearing the latest news reports last night, I think it is our only option right now.
We are hoping that the grants the government spoke about will be available next month, otherwise paying our monthly bills is going to be a stretch!!
If you want to order anything from the shop, please email me and I’ll do my best to deliver it to you or pop it in the post.

Thanks for your support so far and I look forward to seeing you all back in the shop soon.
Much love and stay safe xx

Chitra – Owner of IDC
