Michael Douglas (Outpost)
Outpost Bags and Objects is the work of Brockley-based designer Michael Douglas. Coming from a product design background, making has always been a part of what he does. His aim with Outpost is to create simple, well-considered designs using Scottish canvas and vegetable-tanned leather. Michael also makes bespoke leather goods and accessories for clients including Inkworks, Here Design, and Monotype.
I think there’s something unique about Brockley. It is both creative and vibrant, yet spacious and low-key. For designers and makers, it offers the space you need to work and think. A lot of creative talent make great things here, and it’s nice to feel part of it. There are also great places to get coffee!
