Grain & Knot

The wooden goods at Grain & Knot are lovingly hand-crafted by Sophie Sellu in her home studio, in East London. Sophie graduated from the Manchester School of Art in 2009, but after graduating, she was always searching for new and exciting artistic outlets. In the Summer of 2013, attended a spoon carving workshop in the beautiful British countryside. Inspired by the techniques learnt, she returned home the very next day with an axe, much to her family’s amusement. After giving some spoons away as gifts, friends and family urged her to pursue this avenue and to create a brand for her woodworking. A few cut fingers and splinters later Grain and Knot was born. Sophie also stars in our brand film!
