Astley Clarke Woven
Three decades on from the first British expedition to Everest, Bec Astley Clarke accompanied her Father, the team’s chief medical officer, on an unchartered Himalayan expedition. Using only 19th Century British army maps Bec realised quickly that at the heart of climbing, where rope is your life line, the knot becomes your life preserver and essential link in your chain. With an innate understanding of these life ties of climbing, Bec worked closely with our design team, translating this theory in to an elegant collection of knots and woven rope. Made in Vicenza, Astley Clarke Woven pays homage to age old skills of Italian craftsmanship in a modern context. Hand finished this collection is offered in 18 carat gold and rhodium plated silver.
