About Ashford Handicrafts

In 1934, Walter Ashford founded Ashford Handicrafts Ltd, a company that has become a world leader in the manufacture of quality spinning wheels, weaving looms and textile equipment. They use the finest Beech hardwood sourced from sustainably managed forests with Forest Stewardship Council approval. Their wheels, looms, and carders are the result of more than 80 years of experience, customer feedback, research and development. The products are available in natural wood or finished with eco-friendly water-based lacquer. They are designed to be simple, easy to assemble and finish and fun to use. At their woollen mill in Milton, New Zealand, they source and process high-quality fleeces and fibres. The company continues to this day as a family business. Richard, son of Walter, and his wife Elizabeth have now passed the business into the safe and capable hands of their son James and his husband, David Lester. This third generation is continuing the tradition of providing high-quality, affordable products and ongoing excellent service and support.
