A different sort of artisan

Texture, for the label, is incredibly important. As such, almost nothing is uniformly highly polished. We usually try to create texture through hammering and scratching of the metals and it conveys the label's organic aesthetic very well.

Lately though, we've been experimenting with something a little different. We've been trying to convey texture by fusing two (or more) different coloured metals in one piece. It's extremely labour intensive no doubt, but we think the end result is lovely. :)
