We are MATERIAL – we are a place to look at things… appreciate in their place and imagine them somewhere else… If that somewhere else is a place you know and feel deserves our items, make it so…



The Store

Material presents a unique selection of design led prints, books and products. Working closely with artists, designers and publishers we carefully select and collaborate on a great range of products available to buy both in store and online. At Material you will discover limited edition artist prints,  books, home wares and stationery.


“Bookstore Material is not only about books, magazines and posters, but it’s a colourful world full of ideas and stories.”

Barbora Perglova

“Visiting the London outpost of this gallery and store is an exercise in restraint, because you’ll want everything. Selling art, food and children’s books from independent small presses, obscure magazines you won’t find anywhere else and winsome prints, it’s a book-lover’s delight.”

Behind The Brand

Where it all began

Material launched in 2007 with it’s first store in the small town of Ludlow. With an unusual concept for a small provincial town, Material set a cat amongst the pigeons and aroused much interest. In 2010 Material found it’s way to London with a temporary location in Carnaby Street and then a guest appearance at the issue launch of LE GUN 5, now, a more permanent situation in the East of London where the founders studied and worked in the design industry for several years.



We are always interested in what others have to offer. If you wish to submit a proposal to us be it for an item to sell or an idea for a show, please contact us on submit@materialmaterial.com.

Please note that, although we endeavour to respond to all submissions, we do receive a high volume so it may just be that we don’t manage to get back to you straight away.
