GILLSAWS

About


Launched in 2017; the concept for GILLSAWS was born after being gifted a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle, of the state of California, on my return from a 6 month solo stateside road trip. 

Inspired to design a contemporary collection of jigsaw puzzles, but unable to produce them using UK jigsaw manufacturers, determined to make this happen I set out to make the puzzles independently.


A rise in the awareness of mindfulness and wellbeing has given popularity to meditative and calming pastimes. Producing handcrafted, design focused, jigsaw puzzles, GILLSAWS will collaborate with artists, illustrators & designers to release exclusive limited editions. With a psychedelic-surreal-optical aesthetic, I hope to give new life to a much loved classic product, whilst encouraging people to unplug & tune out from their increasingly demanding, digitally lead lifestyles.

Each puzzle is individually handcrafted in a small studio in Brighton, UK, using an industrial roller press and a custom made die.

GILLSAWS are individually made by hand, therefore reproduction could slightly vary and minor imperfections may occur.
