Photographer, Matthew Walder came to visit the Marwood studio and took some behind the scenes shots to capture some of the processes that go on behind closed doors. This is the first part in a series and he will continue to document the studio in more depth over the coming months and years.
Marwood started four years ago from humble beginnings in an artist studio in Dalston, London. Out of a crowded corner in that studio began sketches, swatches and ideas for the first few collections. After two years we had certainly outgrown the space, with towering boxes looming overhead and production being packed in a storage unit in North London… it was time for a change. So, two years ago we changed our set-up and moved the design studio combined with warehouse to a workshop in Devon, on the outskirts of Dartmoor. It gives us breathing space – headspace for creativity – as well as practical space for boxes and shipping. Our presence in London remains with an office off Hoxton Square where our founder Becky meets press and buyers and stays connected with the city. Ozi runs our London press office and we often welcome customers to pop in and see products up close or work on bespoke projects – particularly weddings.
