Our Story ...
It all began 1983 when, with the naivety of youth, no rural skills whatsoever, three small children and a copy of 'The Good Life', we decided to up sticks from the suburban South East and buy a farm in Cardigan, West Wales!
A few short years later it was evident that enthusiasm and a good book made us far from successful farmers and it was time to embark on a new venture. But loving where we were living we were reluctant to relocate and so, after seeking advice, using the skills we had (Tim an engineer and Judy as Sales and Administration) together with those we had learned because we owned an antique set of brass fire irons we decided to start a business manufacturing our own design of solid brass fire irons together with a small range of candlesticks.
We discovered that although we could sell a few sets of fire irons, ours were expensive compared to those that were imported and as we needed to provide for our children and pay the mortgage we began to introduce desk items; a Rocker Blotter, Letter Opener and Ink Pot were the original desk accessories in our collection.
Our desk accessories fortunately proved popular and we eventually sold to such prestigious outlets as Harrods and Fortnum & Mason in the UK, Bloomingdales in the USA and others around the world. We are also very proud that our products are on the desks of Royalty, Government Ministers, leaders of industry and countless wonderful people throughout the world.
Nearly 30 years later, now with 8 wonderful grandchildren, we still make our original 'rocker' blotter and letter opener but our range has expanded to incorporate over 100 desk top products. Now purely an internet store, we continue to make each and every product individually to order, including its box, and take pride that our barns continue to house our workshops and we are fortunate to be able to continue to live and work in this beautiful, rugged coastal area of West Wales, Great Britain.
Most people never consider how the desk accessories on their home or office desk are made, nor do they realise it takes a skilled engineer to make a solid bar of brass come alive by his knowledge and skill with a lathe, a mill, centuries old techniques and years of experience. We believe that hand-craftsmanship brings something special to your home or office desk and that the quality, durability and beauty of brass lends itself to the creation of some truly unique products.
Because we are able to make and hand finish all of our desk accessories, our quality control is second to none and makes sure every one of our unique range of solid brass desk accessories reaches you, our customer, in perfect condition.
DeskAccessories was born with a desire to make solid brass fine quality desk accessories and gifts which could then be passed on to future generations and we are proud to have been fulfilling that promise to our customers worldwide.
We are a family owned business and believe you, our customers, are an extension of that family relationship. Not only have you helped to create us, but you continue to support us and we strive never to forget that our success is the direct result of that support.
