Falconer
Everything from the colour palette to the practice of this trade enchants me. Imagine if your bread & butter was reliant on forging a partnership with a majestic bird. And then there’s the all-important accessories, such as the falcon’s leather hood and the claw-proof suede gantlet. I think a billowy white shirt would be the must-have wardrobe item for a budding falconer. My journey to Scotland allowed a much-anticipated falconry lesson, which showcased a study in beautiful brown tones. Feeling the power of the bird I was paired with, filled me with awe for this practice, which is not as arcane as some of the previous trades, and only exaggerated the romantic notions I associate with it. It’s hard not to be swept up in the thrill of the hunt.
