Ewemoo Footstools | Swansea
Oriel Celf Ganolog
Art Central Gallery | Barry
Giles Gallery | Ponyclun
Handmade in the Forest | Wentwood Forest
Based in South Wales, within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons and the lovely beaches of the Gower Peninsular, Ewemoo provide quality hand crafted footstools made by ourselves for all the family for every occasion.
We started by crafting quirky foot rests in the shape of sheep in typical “sheep” colours but have expanded the range to provide a choice of both subtle and vibrant colours. Pigs, hedgehogs and highland cattle have also been added and prove to be very popular!
We exhibit our work in crafts fairs and festivals in the hope that we can bring our products to your attention and approval.
Please feel free to contact us with any queries and we are always very happy to try and meet your requirements.
