The Oak & Rope Company is a renowned maker of personalised oak gifts, founded by Jeanette Aurdal in 2009. Originally ignited from a joyous home-made birthday gift, the company has expanded into a globally recognised brand out of Kent, UK, offering meticulously crafted, customisable oak products, best known for their swings, all imbued with Scandinavian design principles. The team prides themselves on creating enduring heirlooms, embracing the natural beauty of oak in every piece.

The story behind the business
Meet The Oak & Rope Company

Jeanette grew up in Norway surrounded by extended family, beautiful AND practical Scandinavian designs and a very strong feeling of what HOME is…The Oak & Rope Company and our 200 plus designs are a result of wanting to create that feeling of home; making family traditions at the same time trying to maintain connections with friends and family near and far!You can almost say that our designs are autobiographical. "It started with a garden swing when my children were little, and for every milestone and life event since we have designed a new product. It means our range includes gifts for every special occasion and practical solutions for your every day. We work on the principle that WE MAKE THE THINGS WE WISH EXISTED, and the joke is that we will eventually design a walking stick with some motivational words hand carved into the wood."We love the fact that the things we make take on a meaning far greater than the piece of oak or the practical function of the product. When you add the words in, be it names, dates, places or quotes, it adds an unique dimension which goes far beyond what we could ever have imagined."My wonderful team and I are so honoured to be trusted to create the focal points of celebrations, every day routines as well as memorials for loved ones. We know that everything we make is a future heirloom and this guides everything we do."
