Craft House Concept

I recently had the pleasure of working with a new shop which opened this month in Edinburgh. Steph Marsden is a local furniture and product designer and maker with a passion for craft and sustainability. Not content with her design business, Magpie Design Industries, she has created a shop which sits at the centre of the community, but which also bridges the void between and home interiors and craft. The result is a space in Newington filled with high quality, carefully designed and crafted furniture and products. Notable designers includes to beautiful woodwork of Sarah Thirlwell, who launched her first table at the shop opening, and the textiles of Lorna Syson who launched a new cushion with is entirely natural. The shop also stocks the playful and fun ceramics of Studio at 37

I worked with Steph to develop a bespoke gift box illustrating the shop and some of Steph's favourite products. Each box is screenprinted on recycled paper, in keeping with Steph's sustainability values, and hand folded. This lovely little project was great fun to work on and upholds the philosophy of this new business which promotes craft as a viable solution in design.
