We were contacted by a customer in Chicago who was inspired by Cecil's Case, a bespoke briefcase created for London Craft Week in 2018 that was recently featured by FT How To Spend It.
Made in London from our Forest green goat leather, this very special briefcase was a response to a host of specific requirements. These included pockets for two iPhones, an interior iPad pocket, detachable shoulder strap and much more.
Having pioneered a zero-waste philopsophy in its original Brighton site, Silo approached us ahead of their relocation to London. The restaurant famously doesn't have a rubbish bin and founder Douglas McMaster also had a vision for staff aprons that didn't need to be washed, saving on water and energy. Our goat leather, hard-wearing and created from a waste stream, fit the bill perfectly and our brief included a slight adjustment to the shape of our classic apron and the removal of the tea towel strap (there are no tea towels at Silo).
The attention to detail at the new Silo site in Hackney Wick is mind blowing. Before you even get to the food and drink you're greeted by materials such as mycelium furniture and upcycled plastic counters from Smile Plastics. Go now.
From the mind of ex-Noma Mexico chef Santiago Lastra, KOL promises Mexican soul with British ingredients. When Santiago got in touch asking if we could recreate a traditional tortilla warmer in our leather, we jumped at this exciting totally bespoke project.
