We’re a talented bunch at Hardhat and sometimes like to shout about the things that take place outside of our day jobs. Kate Gordes’ macramé brand, Scout Gathers, was hand-picked to feature in a collaboration with Haymes Paint.
Our talented designer’s knotted and dip-dyed creations were selected as part of Haymes’ campaign to create a new colour library. Scout Gathers and ten other Etsy sellers’ products were selected to showcase unexpected colour combinations for 2016.
The palette, called Curate, encompasses electric blues, bright corals, rich tans and soft greys, and draws on natural materials like leather, rope, linen and ceramics. This is where our Hardhat designer, Kate, comes in: her handmade creations are made entirely from rope. From plant hangers to modern jewellery, the whole Scout Gathers range uses the knotting technique known as macramé.
The campaign culminated in some beautiful photography that highlighted the natural materials and craft process. The imagery was featured across both the Etsy and Haymes websites, and is just the first phase in the collaboration.
