It’s that time of year – our new matchbox collab has landed!
Two years in the making (not that we’re perfectionists or anything!) and we are so proud of these.
We started chatting over two years ago and are so excited to have Simone Brewster onboard for our second matchbox artist collaboration. Simone is a London-based artist and designer who creates large scale, statement, sculptural furniture, objets d’art, and jewellery. As part of the African Diaspora, her work marries the European influences of her education with an aesthetic understanding of her Caribbean heritage, bridging the gap between these two histories.
This matchbox design is based on artwork originally created with inks and acrylic on paper and canvas, these expressly abstracted paintings conjure the beauty and complexity of the female form and psyche.
These matches are made from 350gsm card with long turquoise tipped black matchsticks and signature double strike.
And just to say a big thank you to everyone for supporting what we do! When I told people I was launching matchboxes a few years ago, I got some strange looks! But it really is such a joy creating a product I want to buy and use, as well as produce them sustainably and ethically. Hopefully more to come! Shop matchboxes and meal planners here.
