Cloud Surfing

The extended English summer sure helps some Calfornia daydreaming.  The other week, Woody took a quick snap shot of cloud waves in the sky.  Those plants reaching up to the sun have also been reminding us of early David Hockney drawings from his time spent in LA. As the autumnal days draw in for those of us in England so do new Woody products. Oh yeah.             The Sailing Days T-shirt has just arrived.... SEE MORE arrow-right

Super Strong Paper Tape

Not just a pretty face - Super Strong Paper Tape

Our new paper tapes are beautiful and practical - so strong you can pack parcels with them.  The tape is made of paper so you can recycle it and colour it in.  Woody recommends using coloured pencils - it looks great on brown paper.  Well designed and better for the environment, plus you get 55 metres to play with.  Buy Rock Faces Paper Tape...
