Handmade Wooden Kitchenware
Konk is a multidisciplinary design studio and workshop producing bespoke pieces of furniture. Everything is handmade to order in our Bristol workshop by an expert team who all share a passion for making.
We don’t believe in a throwaway culture. Our products are made for life - it’s solid, hardwearing and ages with character, using only FSC approved timber from sustainable forests. Working in partnership with One Tree Planted, we donate to plant a tree for every single order we receive.
At weekends I would drive back to my mum's garage after finishing a week of landscaping and use whatever rusty tools I could find to try and get this thing made. It turned out okay. I mean, it would be terrible by the standards I have now, but for the time, I thought it was pretty good.
Made to measure in Bristol.
It all started five years or so ago when Alex (an architecture graduate that didn't want to be an architect) had an idea for a bookcase that he needed for his bedroom. After an unexpectedly successful run of sales on Etsy it became clear that he was onto something. Alex packed in his freezing cold landscaping career and moved into a workshop in Bristol the size of a shoebox.
We now operate out of a 4500sqft workshop with about 20 employees, and Konk has expanded into one of the South West’s leading furniture manufacturers.
