The Pearwood Collection
The Pearwood Collection is made up of design’s celebrating Cole & Son’s rich design history, paying respect to its extensive block print archive and the techniques that were pioneered by them throughout their history. Pearwood was taken from the fruit wood blocks that were originally used by John Perry, the Cole & Son founder. Pearwood was selected because of its relative hardness, which made it perfecting for cutting extremely fine designs but was also very durable. This particular collection celebrates the craftsmanship of a bygone era by using contemporary colour palettes and modern designs that are loaded with tradition and help to create something unique.
