About us

Hello to all my lovely customers current and new.
My Name is Emma and I'm 31 years of age.

I'm very lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world called the Teifi Valley in Ceredigion, Mid Wales.
My 3 year old son and myself live with my partner on his Stud Farm.

 I have always loved the countryside and taken part in many country pursuits with my main passion being horseriding.
After I finished my schooling I attended Hartpury College in Gloucestershire where I studied Equitation.
Having left college and realising mucking out for a living would never pay it's way I decided to go in to full time employment.

 I worked for an animal feed distributor and horseware supplier for many years which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I then decided it was time to move on and gained a management roll for a huge company, this time in fashion clothing.
This roll gave me good grounding for the beginning of my self employment and a new business of my own.

 A friend of mine who has been shooting for fifty years gave me some cartridges and feathers.
I'd always enjoyed making things whether it be from buttons, scraps of material, knitting or wood, I'd always have a go and produce something at the end of it.
So here I was with some cartridges and feathers, I put my creative mind into action.
I produced him a bow tie and some cufflinks.
He was over the moon, he showed his friends who in turn immediately ordered some and  so Gwenllan Country Crafts was born!!!

I now have a vast range that is all handmade by myself, many of my ideas are completely original and you won't find them on the market anywhere else.

 Please enjoy shopping with me and don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can help with.
