My husbands parents retired to France a few years ago and after visiting their old farmhouse and spending time looking around the Charante and West Coast areas, I fell in love with the French style and way of life.
Having studied decorative textiles at uni myself and my Father in law who has been a carpenter joiner for most of his life, I knew that creating fun and decorative products for the home was what I had to do.
Wood & Rope is now a family business based in the UK with all our wooden items made in France and finished in the UK.
A year ago I rescued an oak log from my Father in law’s wood burner, “this is far too good to burn!” I said, “ think of all the wonderful things we could make with this!”. With a love for anything nautical I decided to create a range of homeware accessories that for anyone who shares my passion for the seaside will adore. Visit my Folksy shop
