Our purpose behind 'marf' is clear - we want to produce beautifully hand-crafted, quality products that bring people huge amounts of joy for many years to come. There is something so special about making items that we know will be treasured by each person. Our products are not mass produced, each order is handmade to a very high quality and fine craftsmanship.
We care greatly about our planet, and so we do our best at making sure we are using only sustainable materials when producing and packaging your orders. All our wood is FSC certified and sustainably sourced.
Creative husband & wife duo Jon & Natalie design & make all products from their home studio & workshop based in Bedford, UK. Marf was born in 2021 when Jon & Nat joined forces following a redundancy amidst a global pandemic! Offering a wide selection of creative and personalised products, from cards and wedding stationery to beautifully crafted wooden signs and gifts.
Running a small business takes a huge amount of resilience, grit, determination & hard work - sprinkled with a whole lot of positivity!!
Delegate the jobs that hold you back from doing the parts you love (for us it's accounts!!). Also, invest in community - they will be your biggest cheerleaders and keep you going when you feel like giving up.
Enjoy the adventure :)
