Natthakur shows real ethical forethought too, only using leather which is a bi-product of meat. What more could you ask for from your pennies!

Magie Hollingworth


These little bowls are made by Maggie Hollingworth here on the Welbeck estate! Using recycled paper waste, Maggie creates sculptural forms which emphasize surface, texture and form.


Their stone-like surface texture contrasts with their light weight, and each is individually finished with a touch of gold. At only £12 each, they look dramatic displayed in a group; we've sat them on a beautiful piece of driftwood!




Eco-Design by Sarah Thirwell

Sarah Thirwell cleaverly combines recycled and reclaimed materials with tradional woodturning methods to great effect, creating contemporary objects that are beautiful, usable and eco-friendly, jackpot!


These vessels are made from FSC graded Birch plywood and recycled yoghurt pots (white), vending machine cups (black) or reclaimed acrylic. This considered use of materials has won Sarah several awards and seen her work featured in 'Eco-Design Handbook' 3rd Edition by Thames & Hudson.

Each vessel measures appoximately 100mm wide and 76mm tall, price £40.
