The week's manufacturing, designing and making stories of note:

MPs of Britain this week revealed their favourite products made in the UK. Sadly the interactive map got some locations wrong

A short preview of Kenneth Grange's forthcoming retrospective at the Design Museum (opens 20th July)

Speaking of Grange, he tells RIBA Journal that he's working on a chair for use in residential homes and that he would love to work on bus design

An interview with lingerie maker Ayten Gasson touches on her commitment to manufacture in Britain

And finally, there's a nice interview on Style Salvage with Becky French, the lady behind UK tie maker Marwood
