Naïve Textile Art

Becks and Susan Jennings

We are a mother and daughter who create handmade luxury silk chocolate boxes.

We design and make textile boxes to commission and offer an alternative to standard commercial product packaging. Our artisan created box designs are developed to marry traditional, seasonal and future aesthetics with a company’s corporate identity or a private client’s tastes and personality.

In recent years we have been approached by Fortnum & Mason and Charbonnel et Walker and have designed handmade, seasonal, bespoke silk chocolate box collections for both of these British businesses.

The box designs we have created for Fortnum & Mason were prominently featured in Fortnum’s famous themed window displays and their Christmas and Easter catalogues.

In Summer 2014 our Limited Edition Collection of Couture Silk Chocolate Boxes for Charbonnel et Walker were launched exclusively at Harrods and are also available at Charbonnel’s new concession store in Selfridges and their Old Bond Street shop.

Every box we are commissioned to design is carefully handcrafted from our East Kent studio using premium, high quality materials. We source and select luxurious, colourful, tactile silks and rare, vintage fabrics. All box patterns are handmade. All silk cloth is hand cut. Each box is hand covered in silk and assembled by hand.

Our unique and original three dimensional decorative designed embellishments are handmade. Brilliant Swarovski crystals and faceted or cabochon semi-precious stones are applied by hand or individually hand stitched.

Our boxes are truly handcrafted keepsakes, created to be collected, treasured and cherished.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
