BASKETRY – The traditional craft of the basket-maker never fails to impress. Wickerwork is an ancient technique which has evolved over millennia and is used throughout the world. Originally conceived out of a necessity to contain items, the functional aspect of basketry and the intricacy of the weave are equally appealing.
This year’s calendar pays homage to our favourite colour; brown. We always find ourselves drawn to this colour. Its darker shades have a graphic quality like black, whilst the lighter tones have a warm and natural feel. When we began selecting products for LABOUR AND WAIT over twenty years ago, we soon realised that our proclivity for brown tones could get the better of us and the result would be a completely brown shop. We regularly have to keep ourselves in check to ensure a variety of hues and colours find their way to the shop floor.
