Meet our Makers


Far Fetched Designs is made up of an amazing array of talented makers, crafters and artists - and each and every one contributes something truly unique and special to our range.  Without them, our store would not be the special place it is and we're proud to be a place of uniquely handmade and locally designed pieces.   Our products are so much more than what you see on our shelves, so we thought it only right for you to meet some the people behind the products...
