Miscellaneous Adventures


The beauty found in objects made from natural materials is derived from the beauty found in the whole of nature. We make wooden camping gear by hand so that you can always take a little bit of nature with you wherever you go. All our handmade camping woodenware is inspired by our interactions with the seasons and celebrates the beauty of nature we encounter in the great outdoors.

We strive to make and design outdoor gear that celebrates the beauty of nature. From handcrafted camping woodenware and fabric accessories, to rugged tools and equipment, all of our goods embody the spirit of wild places and seek to enrich the outdoor experience. Made by hand in our woodland studio.
