We're pleased to announce the launch of our new artist in residence collaboration with Becky Allen, an artist who specialises in beautifully intricate drawings, based on repetition. Becky has designed a quartet of accessories, 2 cleaning cloths, Concentric and Curve, and 2 exclusive silk pocket squares, Circle and Quarter.

Becky was inspired by some of the optical ephemera she found at Cubitts HQ. Particularly interested in the abstract optical diagrams and illustrations found within some of the books, she responded to their cyclical patterns whilst being inspired by the shape and form of the iris. Concentric and Curve refer to the dilation of the iris and optical equipment used in measuring eyesight.

Like our previous collaborations, we’re giving the cloths away to all of our wonderful customers over the past four years as a small gesture of thanks.

Simply pop into a store, give us your email address and choose a cloth.

The cloths are also available to purchase, priced at £5, with all proceeds donated to Becky’s charity of choice Kissing it Better, a charity who make a difference to the care of dementia patients and their carers within hospitals and care homes.

The pocket squares, limited to 100 pieces, will be available in our Spitalfields Workshop and online, for £10, with proceeds also going to Kissing it Better.
