Black Bough

About Black Bough

The name ‘Black Bough’ is inspired by a short Ezra Pound poem which reads “The apparition of these faces in the crowd; Petals on a wet, black bough”. The poem can be read as seeing beauty in every day things and this is the philosophy behind the shop.

From the founder

Black Bough is an independent shop set up by Adam Withington and Alex Barter in March 2011, stocking items that are well made, well designed and… well priced. Some of the things that they stock are old, some are new, all are made with consideration and care.
