Antoine is a remarkable man. Residing in Brittany, France, he first reached out to me as a fan of On The Anatomy of Thrift. He then explained, in a manner most eloquent, his philosophy on tradition and hand-work in his passions of wood, canvas and rope. He works by hand, in a simpler way, in a slower way. With the added pleasure of the heritage skills research, like walking in the footsteps of giants. I was overjoyed when he inquired about a logo. The rest is history.
