The Herdwick Stool

Cristina Schek

This is a cool collaboration. Selvedge magazine have brought together furniture designer and manufacturer, ercol and a start-up called Solidwool (the clue’s in the name) to create a new product – the Herdwick Stool.  This uses one of ercol’s most iconic creations, the Svelto stool, as a starting point with a solid seat created from bio-resin combined with the fleece of Herdwick sheep (the iconic breed of the Lake District).  Such an innovative new product, one that highlights the importance of finding new materials that connect to British heritage.
