 From growing cotton, to refining bauxite to make aluminium, ‘the range aims to highlight what beauty there is in making,’ says Champkins.

‘The invention and manufacture of even the simplest of products has been built upon decades of development, and has required hours of thought, ingenuity and endeavour - from the extraction and refining of materials, to the design of manufacturing machinery and production processes,’ he adds.
