UNIFORM | Carrier Company
Thanks to Sadie of Tradlands, I'm newly obsessed with Carrier Company out of Norfolk, England. Almost two decades old, the small company was founded by Tina Guillory starting with a simple carrier bag. She draws inspiration from tradition, necessity, and environment with each piece made from traditional local materials—sailcloth, drill, canvas, wool, jute—and always by hand. Guillory designs from her 17th century brick and flint farmhouse and channels the textures and colors of her world—canvas sails of the dinghies in the creeks, weatherproof fisherman's Slops and oilskins, forged steel from the country blacksmiths, and the requirements of her family and friends.
