About

Established in 1971 by chairman and co-founder Ronnie Pavey, Lesser & Pavey have become a leading UK Trade Supplier of Giftware & Homewares. By priding ourselves on fantastic quality at great value for money, our brand "The Leonardo Collection" has become renowned worldwide.

 

Having outgrown our premises in London over 30 years ago, we moved to our purpose-built 15,000 sq.ft Offices & Showroom, 'Leonardo House', in Dartford. The move allowed us to expand extensively and we now boast a range of more than 5,000 products.

We have exhibited at every Spring & Autumn Fair at the NEC, Birmingham and continue to regularly exhibit at other Trade Shows in Europe and the Far East.

 

When we’re not busy at shows we have a full time Field Sales Team and our Showroom is open all year round.

As well as continually developing our own ranges of Giftware & Housewares and working on bespoke projects for customers using the expertise of our in-house Design Team, we also license artwork from popular artists including The MacNeil Studio, Jennifer Rose & the award winning Hearts Designs.

 

Field Sales Team

On call Monday to Friday 9am-5pm (excluding bank holidays)

Our £250 Minimum Stock Order includes FREE DELIVERY to UK Mainland

If you would like to get in touch with your area representative, please Contact us

Our team of sales representatives in the UK & Ireland offer a one-to-one approach to buying in the trade, plus we have accounts worldwide - wherever you're based, your business is important to us.

We can arrange for a member of our team to meet at your premises, as and when suits you. Our representative will quickly get up to speed with your line of work, show you ranges that sit well with the type of products you sell, and even suggest alternatives you might not have otherwise looked at.

Having taken your order, our representative is available to help with queries and keep you up-to-date with your order, as well as new ranges due in. No doubt you'll also want to repeat order your best sellers; get in touch and our representative will assist.

Whilst you may continue to place orders with our representative over the phone or via email, we anticipate meeting face-to-face won’t be a one-off. We regularly do business with many clients in this way and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Having taken your order, our representative will be in touch and keep you up-to-date with your order as well as new lines coming in. New ranges are added regularly, so we expect you’ll be back time and again.

Design Services

Licensed Artwork

If you’re looking to license artwork you own or have created, our In-House Design Team can work with you to develop a range we can sell to our customers, who in turn sell to consumers worldwide.

The range of products will depend on the artwork you supply - the type of goods it best suits, what's selling well, existing ranges in our catalogue and so on. To kick off, we suggest you get in touch with our Design Team with examples of your artwork for review and we'll come back to you.

Bespoke Design

Our In-House Design Team can develop an exclusive range to sell to your customers. What we can do for you, however, really is down to the brief you supply. So the first step is you telling us what you want.

Through each stage of the process we will seek approval from you before moving on, and by the end of the project we aim to have not only met your expectations, but exceeded them. We continuously work with clients on new ranges and hope you too will want to do it all again.

What We’ll Need

THE BRIEF
If you have already prepared a brief, please get in touch with our Design Team and we'll come back to you shortly. To make an enquiry, call +44 (0)1322 279 225.

ARTWORK
If you wish to supply us with artwork, we will need high resolution vector artwork. If your artwork doesn’t fit our requirements or you’re unsure, please get in touch.
