The above is the strapline for the Manufactum website. Forget Netaporter and The Selby, this is how I like to while away my hours (OK, there is also the hopelessly-addictive Daily Mail website – the comments are priceless – but we won’t go into that). Olde worlde toiletries, hardwearing kitchenware, no-nonsense clothing, is it the iffy economy that finds one seeking refuge in these reassuringly made-to-last products or is it simply the fantastic, utilitarian design?
I wonder if this is what Peter Beard uses for his scrapbooks?
