Located in the heart of east London's market district, LABOUR AND WAIT  gets its name from the last line of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem 'A Psalm of Life':

Let us, then, be up and doing,

With a heart for any fate;

Still achieving, still pursuing,

Learn to labour and to wait.

Offering timeless and functional products for everyday life, this little shop reminds us of the love that may and must be placed even within small and mundane tasks.
