We have recently had the pleasure of working with Emma Hardaker, anArtist, Designer & Maker who is known for her punchy palettes and bold, abstract style and her passion for working in the public realm.

Working from Wharf Street Studios in Shipley, she designed beautifully striking geometric designs which we have been making into purses and pencil cases which are now available at Fred Aldous in Manchester and online.




  • To Mend

Pocket Book 24th June


Always a fan of anything that features mending or caring for clothing, this looks like a delight as Somerset House in London have an exhibition called Eternally Yours – Care, Repair & Healing. Running until 25 September, it showcases diverse examples of creative reuse, from historical samples of Japanese mending, to works from contemporary artists who put repair at the heart of their practice, Eternally Yours explores the unexpectedly hopeful and healing stories that repair reveals.
