Culture Label, the online virtual gallery that aims to "take cultural DNA to a wider audience" via the web, is the perfect marriage of commerce and culture, allowing members of the public to own and gift some of the world's most beautiful design-led products.

Created by Peter Tullin and David Gilbert, the site features carefully selected items from more than 60 leading museums, galleries, artists and designer-makers around the world. Products are sourced from the Tate, The British Museum, Saatchi Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Serpentine Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery and New Museum in New York. The site also provides a platform for emerging artists and creators to showcase their work, allowing users to become overnight collectors from the comfort of their homes. All products can be shipped to the UAE.

This is a treasure trove of unique arts and crafts, with original pieces from internationally acclaimed artists such as Sir Peter Blake, Takashi Murakami, Rachel Whiteread and David Shrigley, as well as collectors' editions, photography, collectable ceramics and inspired design accessories.

The site is also offering a range of limited-edition pieces by some of the standout artists who participated in the recent Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, which featured more than 130 artists across 50 venues. Pieces by Corin Sworn, Karla Black, Rob Churm and Henry Coombes are now available exclusively from Culture Label.
