Britain’s remaining traditional tannery

J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd Tannery

A family-run tannery in Devon is believed to be Britain’s only remaining traditional oak bark tannery still in production.

J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd is based in Colyton, Devon, and has been owned by Andrew Par’s family for 150 years – although a tannery is said to have existed in the area since Roman times. Here Mr Par outlines the process used to transform hides to leather.

Apparently the website is down so I hope the Tannery still exist until today.

Bob Carey – The Tutu Project

Bob Carey The Tutu Project

What started as a way for Bob to make his cancer diagnosed wife Linda laugh by shooting images of himself wearing a pink tutu turned out to be a huge public success as well.

The Careys founded the Carey Foundation to help others by fighting cancer. A great story/project worth to share and even funny on its way.

Through a hint by a follower I came across this furniture designer / carpenter. A great and probably a very comfortable chair to grab a good book and chill. Check also the other products Phloem Studio crafts.
