British Culture, Design & Craftsmanship
We are giving Gordon'sBUGLE over to other stuff we love from around Britain. From people that are making amazing things, to brands that are keeping traditions alive to artists that have some kind of British cultural significance. An alturistic promotion of stuff we don't purvey just stuff we love. Click the images to have a butchers for yourself.
YODOMO - MAKE 2021 THE YEAR YOU GET MAKING
The new year brings resolutions many you will not keep. But SirGordon has just discovered YODOMO. A place to unleash your creativity a learn a new craft with simple online craft courses.
SAXON SOFAS - TRADITIONAL CHESTERFIELDS
We have all been using our derrière a little more than normal during the last few months what with COVID and Christmas. And there is nothing quite so British as a Chesterfield and none made so well as a Saxon. You can read an interview about their craftsmanship here on Merchant & Makers
CAMILLA ROSE - TRADITIONAL SIGN WRITING
At Sir Gordon HQ we have a soft spot for traditional sign writing. And seeing Camilla Rose's work is such a joy. From pub signs (oh we remember going to pubs) to butchers boards and gold leaf gilding. The high street is a much nicer place with work like Camilla's around.
MORRIS COMMERCIALS - ELECTRIC DELIVERY VANS
Just around the corner from Sir Gordon HQ they are reviving Morris delivery vans and re-imagining an icon of our high streets. We hope SirGordon will one day get its hands on one with Camilla Rose doing the livery. You can see a video of it here
