We are Jeska & Dean Hearne, Husband & Wife, adventure seekers, owners of two mischievous cats, and creators of The Future Kept.
As a husband and wife team our backgrounds and experience
It started with a fascination and desire that we've both had for a long time, to seek out beautiful and useful items for life and the home that are made with love, thoughtfulness and detail. Items with timeless qualities created by people with a passion for what they do, and a care for the future of the world we live in.
Our primary goal with The Future Kept is to inspire more people to think carefully about the items they have in their lives, by putting together a collection of best in class products all with a story to tell.
The Future Kept is an online purveyor of well designed, durable, meticulously chosen goods for you to cherish and keep.
Nestled on the south coast of England, we design and carefully source items from independent designers, makers, artisans and entrepreneurs who are creating products that are better for our world, becoming part of your life story, forming an intimacy between you and your belongings.
We provide quality goods with an honest provenance that we use in our day-to-day lives, items made to last that will not fuel the throwaway nature of the modern world, heirlooms of the future. We hope to inspire a curiosity and desire within people to make more sustainable and ethical choices.
Creating and seeking beautifully considered, functional items for others to enjoy is our passion, by sharing these items that we celebrate, we aim to connect and form relationships with like-minded folk, whilst having a positive impact on the environment.
Paired For Life.
We seek out items that will become part of the story of your life while maintaining high standards of ethical sourcing. Items with a classic design that can live on in your family forever to be loved, cherished and kept.
Buy Less, Buy Better.
A strange message for a shop to give, you may be thinking, but we want to promote a lifestyle of appreciating and cherishing the items you choose to have in life, keeping them to pass down through generations and holding onto them for as long as possible. When choosing consumable products that are not designed to last a lifetime, we look for items that are made with love and care and do not harm the environment.
The Perfection Of Imperfection.
Small run, handmade, artisan and vintage products offer a beauty that is tactile and to be celebrated. Unique markings on products like this can show the makers touch, or the wear of time making each piece unique.
Some people put a lot more thought, time and love into the items they create. We spend our time carefully seeking and developing products that fit a few simple criteria, they need to be durable, quality made with a simplistic, sustainable and ethical approach. Products that stand the test of time, that will age well, using the best materials and are not destined to end up in a landfill.
We support the love and energy put into a product by it’s creator, the product we carry is from people who share our vision of striving for more responsible consumerism and care about the world we live in.
We believe in giving back; We will donate a percentage of our profits to a different not-for-profit organisation at the end of each year, and use feedback from you, our customers, on the projects and causes that matter most to you when making this decision. By doing this, it is helping you and us both to give back through the items that are purchased through this store.
