Description

We're excited to bring you this limited edition 'Autumn' bag design with original artwork by Tom Frost .

Print maker and illustrator Tom Frost graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2001. He divides his time between print making, restoring his crumbling Georgian house in rural Wales and raising a young family. His work highlights a fascination for old matchboxes, stamps, folk art, tin toys and children's books and in recent years he has worked with clients including The V&A, Walker Books, Barti Ddu, Penguin, The Archivist, Ladybird Books and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. He aims to produce work that people cherish for years to come.

Recycled crushed, washed and dried whelk shells are ideal for indoor plant pot and terrarium top dressing. Great for cacti, succulents and houseplants. Alternatively you can mix the shells into soil or compost to improve drainage and aeration.

Caryl Andrews, Founder of Shell on Earth

Shell on Earth

New Quay, Wales

Hi, I'm Caryl, co-founder of Shell on Earth. I launched this company along with my husband, Jordan, in 2019. Our desire was to recycle the shells generated at our family's seafood processing business, rather than sending them to landfill.

We’ve been processing shellfish here on the West coast of Wales for over 40 years. We currently specialise in processing whelks.

The whelks are caught locally in traditional pots, a low impact method of fishing which means minimal damage to the sea floor and marine habitats. We’re passionately committed to sustainability and are always looking for new ways to do better.

It's estimated that 5,000 tonnes of waste shells are generated in the UK fishing industry every year. We’re proud to not only reduce our waste output from the factory, but also to help support a circular economy by utilising 100% of the whelks we process.
