After 10 years at 14 Earlham Street, we were very sad to permanently close the doors to our beloved retail space earlier this year. Who knows, we might be back in the West end (or elsewhere!) sooner than we think, but this location will always hold a special place in our hearts.
After going through the seven stages of grief, we came out on the other side and decided to do something fun in its memory. The storefront was a popular subject amongst artists and we were often sent, or tagged in, drawings of the store, something we always greatly enjoyed. So, we reached out to David Clark whose illustration we always thought perfectly captured both the small details and slight wonkiness which made 14 Earlham Street what it was.
After David re-worked his original illustration, it was sent on to North London-based 5th Column, who with their eco-ethical approach to garment-printing and interesting background story, was an ideal collaborator for this project. The dark green print is a nod to the green facade at 14 Earlham Street.
The bags are made in 100% Fairtrade Cotton Canvas (407 gsm) and come in an edition of 100.
