Tina Guillory is the woman behind Carrier Company, a Norfolk based clothing line which produces beautifully made work and outer wear. Each piece of the collection is hand-made to high standards by her team of local artisans and friends, who understand the extremities of rural living like no other. Everything is made not only to last, but to mature with age, hoping to withstand time and be passed down through generations. Robust, elegant canvas bags are as suitable for carrying logs, as they are for picking up a grocery shop.
I spent time with Tina, following her through the day as she worked in the studio, made lunch for some of her ‘staff’ (though they seem more like family), and took a late afternoon stroll to show me her sailboat.
