Established in 2012 by Damien and Joi Hannigan, 31 Chapel Lane celebrate the virtues of structure, materiality and stability in their timeless designs and tailoring. Each design is rigorously developed and examined and each piece is then tailored from finest Irish linen or Donegal tweed. Professional, ethical and considerate, their items are strong and valuable, made to be enjoyed, lived in, and held onto for a lifetime.
Architect Anna Wynne carves spoons from locally sourced storm-fallen greenwood from her doorstep in the wild mountains of the west coast of Scotland. Using only an axe and a knife, Anna’s hand-cut marks create a faceted yet beautifully smooth surface, giving each spoon a tactile texture imbued with nature and designed to give it’s holder joy whether cooking, eating or simply admiring. Each spoon is then finished with a natural wood-butter with beeswax from over the hill on the shores of Loch Fyne.
One half of the team responsible for turning a forgotten and unloved chapel into the ever-so-stylish Bruton bolthole - At The Chapel - furniture designer Ahmed Sidki creates impeccably styled furniture that combines simple forms with natural colours and tactile materials. For all of his pieces, Ahmed uses British craftsmen and locally sourced natural materials that age gracefully with use. At The Chapel is a testament to his talent where his touch and utterly beautiful modern and pared-back aesthetic is evident at every turn: from the beds, to the tables, to the spiral staircase and to the candlesticks. He is the master of understatement and integrity, with a magical touch.
Founded by Chloe Luxton from a belief in the power of nature, Bramley is the ultimate British natural beauty brand. Inspired by the beauty of the British countryside where it is made, and infused with fair trade essential oils, Bramley’s products harness the therapeutic properties and magic of British flowers and plants. Ingredients are wild crafted, grown sustainably and sourced carefully with integrity. Each little bottle is packed to the brim with natural goodness, smells heavenly, delivers practical results and the bottles even look as beautiful as the flowers themselves.
Founded in 2005, Elvis & Kresse is a pioneering sustainable luxury brand who started out by rescuing decommissioned fire hoses and turning them into beautiful pieces of luggage and accessories, giving 50% of their profits back to The Fire Fighter’s Charity. This range has gone from strength to strength and Elvis & Kresse’s talented craftspeople now create beautifully designed bags and homeware from 15 different reclaimed materials – including the leather off-cuts from British luxury brand Burberry and the Burberry Foundation, under whose wings they have a 5 year partnership. Elvis and Kresse are sustainable luxury at its best.
Felicity Irons' work carries on an age old tradition that goes back many centuries. She spends the summer months of June, July and August harvesting English freshwater bulrush on the River Great Ouse in Bedfordshire, the Nene in Northamptonshire and on the River Ivel in Bedfordshire to create her beautiful pieces. Felicity and her small team cut up to 2 tonnes of rush a day which is then dried against a hedge in the wind and sun for a couple of days. The variation in weather during this process naturally produces extraordinary and beautiful shades of colour: prolonged sun gently bleaches to warm honey tones and during windy weather the colours have more vivid green and blue hues. There are no chemicals used in any part of the process. It is entirely natural.
Founded by designer Florence Saumarez, Inq specialises in designing and producing hand-marbled papers and products. Developed many centuries ago in Japan and Turkey, marbling was used primarily to decorate papers for books. Inq combines the same traditional techniques and materials with a modern aesthetic to reinvigorate this endangered craft. Gouache paints are favoured over modern acrylics, giving each marbled paper its characteristic richness and deep velvety finish that is unique and mesmerisingly beautiful.
Working from her home studio in Scotland, Jude Gove crafts and creates beautiful leather and pure wool felt accessories.

Each of Jude’s pieces is completely hand-made, simple, functional, covetable, ever-so-stylish and will last you a lifetime.
