Nebra Octarine Starmap and our love for 100% cotton !

  Where does the Firespiral love of cotton come from?   When we first started out, Tamsin and I sat at my kitchen table one Sunday morning (with good coffee and danish pastries to make us feel more professional) and we made a list of the things that were close to our hearts that we wanted […]

The Birth of Charters Moss: Design History

There is a visual lexicon to every geographical area, and around where I live it is the moorland grass tufts, crisscrossed with glittering peaty brown ribbons of water cutting their path down the hillsides.

This is the landscape that inspired both of these wrap designs and so […]
