For rustic simplicity paired with design excellence, this hand-forged iron bracket is a classic exemplar. In complete contrast to our general maxim of ‘more is more’, we have fallen for the effortless design of this bracket in distressed white. Not only are we in love with the slightly fluted ends, but the addition of a hook is, in our minds at least, genius. The producer of it employs approximately thirty people who work in teams and mostly in their own homes. The lion’s share of the work is done by particular communities and is very labour intensive. Traditional ironsmiths or ‘lohars’ as they are known in India, do heavy blacksmithing and forging with hot metal, whilst the muslim village folk generally tend to work with sheet metal. Materials for products can also include wood and some salvaged metal recycled from the manufacturing process. All waste is recycled, re-used or disposed of responsibly. They harvest rainwater from their factory roof and store it in a tank for watering the factory garden which is planted with trees. These artisans provide authentic handmade items that perfectly illustrate the craftsmanship of centuries old techniques. For storage artistry, pair up two brackets and a shelf and then hang stuff! Jewellery, vintage floaty tops, trailing plants, pompoms and bells. We couldn’t quite step away from the ‘more is more’ edict … nearly though!!
