Maule & Maule took roots once upon a time as a small project by Nicola Maule that complimented the business of Wild Fig - a catering company and producer of fine preserves based in the west of Scotland that I run with my husband and chef, Justin Maule.
It began with some kitchen and homeware items that were sold on our website, yet as I slowly felt a draw towards finding objects for the home and the self that would help my ongoing personal aspiration to declutter and simplify my living I was inspired to bring this developing interest and my fine art curatorial experience back to life a little. Some objects are chosen for their quality and the talented hands of skilled makers, where both beauty and functionality work together for you, its new owner. Some are objects that are practical, well made of course, but have a shorter life cycle - items however that can be repurposed and / or recycled.
I have tried as much as possible in the early stages of this project to sell all items that are sustainable and ethical and as the business grows the collection will also grow to establish a space where that ethos will also take root more deeply through the objects sold.
