First, we spotted one of OMI series pendants by Naomi Paul. The striking Hanna pendant is a handcrafted, flat-pack pendant that is made with yarns such as mercerized cotton and silk sourced from fashion industry surplus and waste.

Next, we watched as the workers in the Faye Toogood space were busily creating their felt House Hightops in their on-onsite workshop. This space showed the transparency of production, from manufacturing to shop floor in one small space.

We got a warm welcome from Technology Will Save Us and came away feeling pretty inspired to get crafting with technology after casting our eyes over their selection of parts and workshops that this haberdashery for technology and education had on offer. They believe that giving people a better understanding of the technology we use every day will lead to more sustainable, creative and possibly ecologically-conscious habits.
