Artisans At Work

September 30, 2021

Who are the true creators behind our designs?

Founded nearly 30 years ago, by Steve Roberts in a makeshift workshop outside the little Devon cottage he and his wife had just moved to from London. The qualities and ethos of those early prototypes (innovative design and experimental materials, hand made using only the very best materials) still stand true today.

With a purpose built  factory in the heart of North Devon, the business is now one of the largest employers in the region, providing jobs for engineers, craftspeople and many other types of creative individuals.


From metal finishing,  mould making and casting, leather work, engineering,  designing and sales experts,  we have artisans who are passionate about their work producing  some of the most exciting hardware on the market and constantly pushing the boundaries of design and innovation.


We pride ourselves in knowing that every handle we produce travels through at least eight pairs of hands on its way to final quality control inspection, so confident are we about the quality and durability of our product that we offer a life time guarantee and our complaints department is our MD, Steve.

To keep in touch and learn more about the amazing team members behind these designs, we have launched our ‘Meet the makers’ IGTV series. Here you can discover more about our processes by joining us behind the scenes with interviews from our talented team of makers.

You can also see more of our production and manufacturing processes via our YouTube Channel.
