Welcome to our latest news in this, the most extraordinary of times. Firstly we hope you are staying safe and well. Although restricted, many of us are enjoying secure and comfortable surroundings and we are mindful that not everyone has that privilege.
For those who are working from home and for gift ideas that also tick that box for others, we thought we’d share some desk-based collections recently launched.
And instead of our usual ideas for museum trips and urban days out, we hope you enjoy some favourite Pod Cast recommendations.
DOE X BAMFORD
We were delighted to be approached by Bamford back in March to collaborate on a small collection of hand made homewares.
There were plenty of lockdown challenges, with lots of image emailing, swatch sending and video meetings.
All the detail crunching was so worthwhile and resulted in some truly covetable pieces we are proud to have our name on.

PHOTO FRAMES AND NEW DIARY COVER
Another collaboration, which we look forward to each year (this is our 4th) is with the award-winning stationer Mark and Fold.
We’ve brought back our popular Avocado Green Diary/Notebook Covers and have introduced Havana, a luxurious bitter chocolate bridle. The contrasting pen loop colours are one-offs from our family tannery archives.
Havana bridle is the leather of choice for our new Photo Frames. Each has a unique vintage print lining in a choice of tobaccos, olives, tans, midnight blues and a single sunshine yellow. For both vertical and horizontal displaying, museum grade and recyclable glass protects your image.
