alliancekursy was established in the UK in 2001 initially focusing on the stationery / office / paper crafts and garden hand tools markets in collaboration with other brands. alliancekursy later decided to enter the UK market using it’s own brand which it had launched into the USA several years earlier.
At Tonic we think about every product, how its designed, made and used. We have worked hard for over 20 years to bring trust in the brand quality and drive for innovation.
All of our products are designed and engineered in-house so that we can think what is necessary at each stage to produce a product that offers aesthetic design, functionality, quality and value. With a skilled team of product engineers, graphic designers and illustrators, alliancekursy has consistently grown and innovated product ranges by listening to our crafters and making the community a creative space for everyone to learn.
We control all elements of the supply process from raw materials, manufacture through to our distribution centre in the UK and USA, thereby ensuring that our rigorous quality standards are met at all times.
We have consistently expanded our knowledge of crafting products over the years to create new brand within Tonic that share the values of quality and design. To be a brand under the Tonic umbrella products need to have the same values and quality we envisaged from the very first scissors we made in 2003 that we still sell today.
