OUR PHILOSOPHY

A celebration of craftsmanship and design has been the core of the brand. Each small run is handmade or knitted by hand on-site and in our studio in Yorkshire using local sources, prioritising sustainability, quality & finishes, modernising the notion of crafts.

Producing in limited quantities and only what is truly wanted by you, we believe we contribute to building for a more sustainable future. As a commitment to that, please allow one to two weeks for produce and dispatch, even though we’ll try to get it to you as soon as possible.
