In the Studio with Mike Watt of Rural Kind

Mike Watt’s appreciation for functional design and Welsh vernacular architecture feeds into his handmade Rural Kind pieces. “There is never any ornamentation,” he says. “I love things that are functional, but also beautiful. I want things to work well, and look purposeful.”

The products respond to the rugged natural landscape surrounding his workshop, which necessitates hardwearing and robust materials. Mike sources most of these materials from the UK – the waxed cotton canvas from a longstanding company in Dundee; the leather from a Devon tannery that uses only local hides, and is hand-finished with natural oils and waxes.

Rural Kind has previously designed garden-focused products for TOAST. Our Autumn Winter collection features a waxed cotton log carrier, a leather bike bag and a card wallet making kit.
