A Ruthin-based company has won a top trade accolade.

Lavinia Stamps are delighted to have won the West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce Award for Export & International Trade for the second year in succession.

Local artist Tracey Dutton of Cyffylliog founded Lavinia Stamps almost 20 years ago.

Tracey is inspired by the local area, and her art has mystical and magical themes that is reproduced onto polymer stamps primarily used for card crafting.

Online sales now reach over 50 countries and the shop based on Lon Parcwr attracts visitors from across the United Kingdom and internationally.

In addition to the stamps, there is a wide range of crafting products, artisan gifts and décor.

The Lavinia Social media has huge international following and Lavinia video tutorials inspire crafters of all abilities.

Lavinia Stamps recently purchased Plas Coch, formerly the Conservative Club on Well Street.

Renovations are now underway and Plas Coch will be Lavinia’s new shop and gallery with an extensive arts and craft range along with unique home and garden décor and gifts items.

There will also be a demonstration area, craft workshops and themed open days.
