For All We Know create contemporary design for the home.
Good design influences how our homes look and how we live in them. For All We Know’s iconic designs are applied to ceramic, textile and paper to make beautiful and useful pieces for the home. Borrowing from the past and the present, we’re creating the heirlooms of the future.
Sarah Haines, For All We Know’s founder, is based in Battersea. Her work draws upon urban motifs and the rural idyll, bringing a little bit of the wild into the city. Her own photography, found images and libraries all contribute to For All We Know’s living image archive. It’s a place we go back to for inspiration time and time again, collating, montaging and redrawing old and new images to create our iconic designs.
Sarah has a background in interiors and project management and decided to take the plunge and founded For All We Know in 2011. Sarah has worked across a wide variety of projects such as regeneration schemes in Dalston, London, museums including Victoria and Albert Museum, Churchill Museum, a natural history gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.
This has all informed and influenced what she does today in her work at for All We Know. She often says life is circular and this is very true in her business. In 2011 starting her creative experiments in upcycled decorative ceramics working with specialists in her birthplace of Stoke on Trent.
Our new and upcycled homewares are created through a very special supply chain. We’re proud that our ceramics, textiles and paper products are all made in England - designed by us in Battersea and made by artisans across the country. Jo in Somerset creates our lampshades. Velda in Leigh on Sea makes our beautiful cushions. Louise and Dan in Sussex print our textiles and Gary in Stoke on Trent, home of British ceramics, creates decorated ceramic pieces for us.

Sarah has been based in Battersea for the past 10 years but is often out seeking inspiration in English country homes and gardens. Her designs bring a breath of the wilds to her fellow urban incumbents.
