We design limited-edition objects that emerge from an experimental studio practice. We also love to collaborate on projects with like-minded brands, shops, and designers.

The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction
Ursula K le Guin
A leaf a gourd
a shell a net a bag
a sling a sack
a bottle a pot a box
a container.
A holder.
A recipient.
Drawing from a background in art and geology, we create focused, sculptural objects that achieve complex results with the simplest means.

The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction
Ursula K le Guin
I would go so far to say that the natural, proper, fitting shape of the novel might be that of a sack, a bag. A book holds words. Words hold things. They bear meanings. A novel is a medicine bundle, holding things in a particular, powerful relation to one another and to us.
