boot and what..?!
who we are and what we do
Boot&Saw specialise in sustainable products and eco-design for the home, offering a range of stunning products from boot stands & welly racks to hat stands and bespoke contemporary furniture all hand crafted in-house in Cornwall by Tristan Harris, a ‘Sustainable 3D Design’ graduate of University College Falmouth.
Established in 2006, Boot&Saw or ‘Alternature’ as it was previously known is a small company based in the town of Redruth, as part of the creative community that is The Old Grammar School or ‘Krowji’.
Sustainability: An important part of Boot&Saw and something we are passionate about. We aim to make everything as eco-friendly as possible from when we design something to how it is disposed of. Local materials are used whenever possible; our Oak is English, often sourced from Cornwall. We also use local businesses wherever possible for consumables and services.
Packaging is reused from a local source and waste is recycled. Our waste chippings are used by a local fish smoker and our off-cuts used by Krowji residents to heat their homes and studios.
Nothing is left to waste here at Boot&Saw and we strive to make as little environmental impact as possible.
Our Products: We have a background in furniture design which comes through in all we design and make. From the simplest of boot stands to high-end commissioned furniture, our eye for detail is cast over everything, meaning you get the best quality product available with a real handmade finish.
We specialise in boot storage and offer a range of shoe, boot or welly racks with the option of FSC Pine or Local English Oak, all of which are available in a range of sizes. From basic floor standing boot racks to top line wall welly racks and even racks with seats, we are sure to have something to tidy that pile of boots in your porch, kitchen, hallway etc all hand-crafted and sent straight from our workshop in Cornwall.
Don’t be fooled into thinking we just make boot stands though, our range now includes coat and hat stands, umbrella stands, mirrors, shoe racks, surfboard racks, coat racks, ‘cuckooless clocks’, coat ‘tree’s and much more. Let’s not forget we are official Aigle and Viking Dryboot stockists and can furnish you with the best boots as well as a boot stand to put them on.
Above all Boot&Saw is committed to good design, quality materials and excellent service. We are passionate about what we do and like to think this shows in the products we make.
If you would like to discuss a commission piece, want a welly rack for your school, need a pair of Dryboots sent to Greenland or simply want your boot rack unvarnished so you can paint it yourself; no problem. If you can’t see what you need, do drop us a line and chances are we can make it for you.
