By using sustainably sourced leather, they create beautiful long-lasting products for you and your home, that are both kind to your wallet and kind to the planet. We love that each Rise & Woll product is a limited edition, as they rarely receive the same hide twice, and therefore can only make a select few products in each leather.

Rachael’s inspiration came from her Grandad’s garden, which was always incredibly well tended. She’d spend hours helping in his greenhouse and picking the beautiful smelling sweet peas, so when it came to choosing a name for her business, we think it’s a lovely sentiment that she chose to name it after her Grandad Tom.

Producing deliciously moreish crisps and scrumptious popcorn you can see why they have won so many awards, oh and they source all their packaging from Yorkshire too!
Baked in the Yorkshire Dales, these artisan flapjacks are the products of a true family business, a family with baking deep in their history. Katie grew up helping her father in their village bakery and together, over time, they developed the business - focusing on delicious recipes using high quality ingredients to create Yorkshire Flapjack.
