Wood & Weave - Product Launch

Welsh Otter

Welsh Otter is collaborating with Daniel Harrison Furniture to create a brand new collection called 'Wood and Weave', designed and made in South Wales. Locally sourced Welsh wool fabrics and woodland timbers combine to create beautifully balanced furniture, taking inspiration from traditional Welsh vernacular design whilst adding a contemporary feel.

Our ethos: 
- To work with natural, local and traditional materials 
- To reveal the stunning beauty of both the wood and the weave, in combination 
- Beautiful, thoughtful design – fit for modern living 
- To create a collection of exquisite craftsmanship, whilst also being accessible and affordable


Daniel Harrison is an award winning furniture designer and maker, creating pieces from his studio near the coal-mining town of Ammanford in South Wales. Daniel uses traditional hand tools alongside modern digital machinery, essential for the contemporary furniture he makes. His deep respect for wood ensures that it’s natural beauty is celebrated and lives on in a new form for future generations. We use native sustainable woods in this collection - Daniel hand selects trees that once stood within a 15-mile radius of his local sawmill. Once ordered, information will be provided about the particular tree from which your furniture is derived, including location and care instructions.

Kim at Welsh Otter works with several woollen mills in Wales to design and source her fabrics. Weaving takes place using traditional looms which are over 100 years old, and all fabric is made with 100% wool sourced in the UK. 
 Kim is passionate about fabric design and loves the natural way that her fabric combines with the local wood to stunning affect. 

'Llinos' Three Legged Oak Stool
Drawing on inspiration from traditional Welsh vernacular furniture, our Welsh oak 'Llinos' milking stool is a design exclusive to Welsh Otter. It is beautifully compact -perfect for use as an occasional seat or a place to rest your legs.
Milking stools were originally used to milk cows in the field or in the cowshed - three legs were common as they are more stable on uneven ground. It was important they were light and small for easy carrying. 

'Rhodri Four Legged Oak Stool'
Our beautifully constructed Welsh oak  stool 'Rhodri' is perfect for use as an occasional seat or as a small side table. 'Rhodri' is an ancient Welsh name that also has links to roundness or wheels - reflecting the circular top of this little stool perfectly.  Our stools are crafted using time honoured joinery methods in a contemporary style. Four angled legs crafted with mortice and tenon construction. A laburnum wood wedge forms a strong yet decorative joint.

Each stool comes with a removal pad, upholstered in beautiful Welsh woollen fabric. They can be removed for washing, or can be swapped for different colours should you want a different look! We have the following colourways available:
