Addressing the need for design durability and product longevity as a means of minimising excess consumption in a throw-away culture, Tait demonstrates a layered, sustainable design approach with the notion “buy once, buy well”.Encompassing these values, Tait design outdoor products which are timeless in design with refined functionality – designed to last a lifetime.
