Custom made eco storage created from cargo crates for The Limes

Many moons ago, our CEO, Liz Fraser, met with Chris Bennett, founder of thinkFOUND and as he talked through the vision for his furniture-making social enterprise, it quickly became clear that The Limes and thinkFOUND had plenty in common. From being inspired by William Morris, to his determination to provide young people with the skills and experience for employment, our values and aims were a perfect fit for a collaboration.

Plans were drafted to kit out the main hall with custom-made storage solutions and Liz set about the hard task of raising the funds to make it happen. With funding secured from The Clothworkers Company, work is now in progress to install lots of unique storage and seating, each piece designed with the needs of our children and young people in mind. 

All the furniture is made from repurposed cargo crates – they've had very busy lives flying artworks around the world and now that they've reached retirement, they would normally be consigned to the scrapheap... but in the talented hands of thinkFound they have been given a new lease of life and a new home with us. We can't wait to show you!
