About Thor & Wistle
Thor & Wistle is a boutique atelier and concept space all rolled into one. It is a collaborative project between Kamilla Thorsen and Rachel Entwistle of Dynasty and Rachel Entwistle Jewellery. The designers make their creations on site in the studio and work with other UK artists to collaborate and showcase the best of emerging design talent. Both brands pay homage to natural history, entomology, symbolism and mythology.
The East London pair first met in December 2009 in Netil House Studios in London Fields where they shared their first studio space. They went on to collaborate on a pop-up shop on East London’s Columbia Road in 2011 before opening Thor & Wistle in the summer of 2012.
The space was designed with up-cycling in mind, utilizing recycled and salvaged materials along with antiques and specimens to create an unusual and atmospheric space. Reminiscent of a curiosity shop or museum the atelier store is an extension of their design philosophy and inspiration and a welcoming place for people to visit and get to know the inner workings of the brands.
With a 2013 nomination for Boutique Retailer of the Year and Time Out describing the store as a "gorgeous little place" the boutique is fast establishing itself as the go to place for jewellery with a difference.
