The project brought together Gareth and two British companies with a reputation for understated elegance, high-quality manufacturing and idiosyncratic style. This collaboration sought to explore the possibilities and limitations of cyclic manufacturing, the potential of sharing materials, and the need for greater permanence in what we produce. Born from a conversation between Folk founder Cathal, and Gareth about utilising the excess fabric that is a natural part of the production of clothes. They approached Sheridan Coakley, the founder of SCP, with a specialist upholstery factory in Norfolk to discuss the idea.
The result is a furniture collection designed by Gareth fully upholstered in remnant Folk fabric. Further exploring enduring design principles Folk specially designed a multipurpose removable bag, using surplus leather from SCP’s factory. Inspired by visits to the factory, and completing the collaboration Folk produced a collection of trousers reinterpreting the classic upholster trouser cut. The collection is available to purchase at SCP and Folk.
