The words ‘craft’ and ‘digital’ have long ceased to be mutually exclusive – and an upsurge in online stores selling hand-made design is the inevitable result. London-based La Gent is one such, notable for its edit of artisanal brands you won’t see anywhere else. Founder Sharif Labo is on a mission to bring these small makers to a wider audience. His webstore’s tagline is ‘cool gifts for guys’, but we think women will find a thing or two to lust after as well, not least the sculptural brass ‘Censer’ incense burner by New York lighting studio Apparatus, sensuous perfume oils by Maison Louis Marie and Patch NYC’s beautifully illustrated candles.
