Last year we published the Designers Christmas List, this year we are letting you take a peak in the RAW stocking (well ‘wish list stocking’). Anyone feeling extra festive and generous? We love surprises!
1. Whittling knife
For years we have followed Ray Mears on TV and dreamt of all those wonderful sunsets spent in the woods of the world. Sitting by a camp fire nibbling on roast boar sausages whilst whittling a stags head out of a fine piece of old oak. Well now the whittling bit is attainable with this beauty of a whittling knife…
2. Apple Watch
If you can stand it – watch this video one more time and join us in the excitement as we get closer to wearing an Apple Watch. Jonny Ive’s dulcet tones prepare us all for the grand arrival of Apple’s next baby…
3. Studio Ghibli
Story telling doesn’t get much better than Studio Ghibli and this year The Wind Rises was exceptional. We own most of Hayao Miyazaki’s films so treat yourself to one; great for a Christmas afternoon in front of the little screen.
4. A welsh pair of jeans
They say, ‘do one thing well’ and that’s what Hiut Denium do, make jeans. Just jeans. And they make them in Wales. Another company by Howies founder David Hieatt and a great example of focus.
5. Weekend at Do
Thinking a little bit beyond Christmas into how to inspire you and your team, friends or family next year? Then sign up for a DO lecture, camp or little trip…
6. Only Planet
We haven’t read it! But it comes recommended…
7. Lumina FLO light
Designed by a great friend of ours and his team, it makes light a pleasure.
8. Charcoal water
They say ‘Binchotan active charcoal has been used in Japan as a water purifier since the 17th century. It reduces chlorine, mineralises the water and balances the pH. The binchotan active charcoal can be used for up to 6 months and amazingly recycles for many different uses after this’. We say try it!
9. Designers dream desk
A perfect companion for the workplace designer…
Believe it or not you can get a twin Twizy, and the RAW brothers fancy a Twizy RAW mobile!!!
