SJAELV.

Sjaelv was born out of the desire to create minimal and timeless leather goods that withstand the test of wear and time. All of their bags and accessories stand for clarity in design and the beauty of untreated, natural leather. They are passionate about sourcing responsible and believe in thoughtful purchasing. All of their leather goods are entirely designed, hand-cut and lovingly handcrafted in their small studio in Hamburg, Germany. They believe in creating beautiful and sustainably made products that are made to last. All of their designs meant to be minimal and functional through time and not just for one season. They are all about quality over quantity and put all their efforts into sustainable material sourcing and ethical manufacturing. All of their bags are made of really pure and natural, vegetable-tanned leather from Europe which will get better and better with time and wear.

THORN & ANCHOR.

In early 2014, Tom stumbled across spoon carving, and it quickly became an obsession. The ability to create something that was both beautiful, and purposeful was a big attraction. It allowed him to put all of his creative skills together to design an object that could bring others joy in many ways. The idea for Thorne and Anchor was born soon after. When he got married, he moved into a wooden hut by the beach at Thorness Bay on the Isle of Wight. Stripped of mod-cons such as running water and electricity, this organic simple way of living was a really positive experience and helped him appreciate the little things in life that are easy to take for granted. This was the perfect environment to really explore the art of spoon carving.Each item he makes is loving hard carved from reclaimed timber, this reflects his belief that we should be accountable for everything we buy or source and respect it.
