Mistletoe Bowl

November 22, 2016

Our final limited edition design of 2016, Mistletoe. A celebration of Christmas through this richly symbolic evergreen plant.

Stealing kisses beneath a bough is a relatively new tradition associated with Mistletoe. It’s folklore is, in some places dark, however, in Yorkshire it’s been a symbol of living in harmony since Mediaeval times and this element of it’s history seems worthy of note and more relevant than ever.

Available to order at the end of November. Please join our emailing list for the notification.

With Love Project

March 16, 2016

Last year we were visited by Chris & Rob of the With Love Project

“With Love is a site dedicated to finding people who produce things with a passion and purpose. It is brought to you by Chris Roberts and Rob Evans and documents their search to find individuals who truly care about what they do and what they produce.

Asking one single question along the way… “Why do you do what you do?”

We are really pleased to have been included in the Film & Book. Thank you.

Soon to be screened at “The Independents Club” london follow @withloveproject for details  http://www.withloveproject.co.uk/
