Labour And Wait

    Set in the heart of Shoreditch on Redchurch Street, the philosophy behind Labour and Wait is "a simple, honest approach to design, where quality and utility are intrinsic." Set up in 2000 by two former menswear designers, the store sells a dizzying selection of beautifully designed products, with a focus on simplicity and functionality. Home wares, gardening equipment, apparel, accessories, stationery, and beauty products all have their place at Labour and Wait. Products are presented in an interior which seems to take its cue from an old-fashioned hardware store – all stripped floorboards, polished wooden counters and tidily stacked shelves. Items are sourced from specialist manufacturers around the world who offer quality items designed to last, so you'll find original Breton tees from Brittany, Bialetti expresso makers from Italy and original British Army Knives. Labour and Wait also manufacture a selection of items themselves including Irish linen tea towels and robust cotton work aprons.Show lessRead more
