Doing the Laundry

We hand make beautifully traditional laundry maids and clothes horses, these classic, simple pieces encapsulate all that is special about doing laundry the old fashioned way. All solid wood and beautifully finished, these pieces are not only useful but they actually look the part, not to mention the environmental benefits of letting the fresh air dry your clothes. We sell these beautifully simple products all over the world, people like the idea of going back to basics and getting away from plastic and throwaway items.

  • Our much loved Laundry Maid was designed by Paul nearly thirty years ago, a slightly simpler and more contemporary take on the old traditional one has made this Laundry maid good enough to hang anywhere in your home.
  • The Laundry Maid uses a traditional pulley system, the rack is made from 5 lacquered ash slats, fixed to two brushed aluminium brackets and finished with a deVOL plaque. They are supplied with 39 feet of jute cord and an exclusive chrome cleat for securing the Laundry Maid at your preferred height.
  • Our Clothes Horse is made from strong lacquered cedar wood and is joined in the traditional way with woven fabric hinges and aged bronze studs. This piece is great for drying clothes, but has so many other uses, display, drying herbs and of course covering with a blanket and making a den just as you did when you were a child!
