A typical day in the Hampson Woods workshop comprises of good coffee, good music and yard ball in the summer – sounds pretty perfect to us. The company was established by Jonty, whose desire to make wooden products landed him a Hackney-based workshop. The brand grew from there and the rest, as they say, is history.
Hampson Woods place great emphasis on ethical production. All of their wood is sourced from a small UK network using trees that need to be felled or have already fallen. They make spoons from their board offcuts and pegs from their spoon offcuts – wastage is kept to an absolute minimum.
The company always aspires to create beautiful, humble pieces that will be loved by their future owners, reflected in Hampson Woods’ simple and elegant designs. They are constantly innovating and dream of growing to incorporate a network of regional workshops across the UK.
