Artisan hand crafted versus mass produced
Just 100 years ago, everyone relied on themselves or their neighbours to come up with most of the things needed to live a comfortable life. Hand made was the norm. Sons learned valuable skills from their fathers or served apprenticeships to become highly skilled craftsmen. Today, for the most part this has been lost. Here at Rustic Simplicity we are rediscovering the pleasure of hand crafted artisan furniture.
It is always much better to give a home made gift. Not everyone has the time or resources to produce things themselves. Why not give your loved ones something simple and well made that you know will last.
Browse our shop for lots of unique and interesting items that make great gifts. Each item is unique – you won’t find another one exactly the same anywhere on the planet. We make everything ourselves, dreaming up the designs as we find inspiration in the natural world around us. We are constantly amazed by the beauty of the recycled oak we work with, running your hands over the curvey lines of the smooth sanded barrels is just irresistable!
