We are Forest Crafts - a small upcoming business with a passion for creating design elements, ornaments and custom-made products. We love working with wood, but often use all kinds of materials in our designs. Our workshop is based in Hafnarfjordur, Iceland, but our roots are in Latvia.

Forest crafts took its first steps in 2017, after finding home in Ishus Hafnarfjordur. There we spent the first year building our CNC router, experimenting with it and daydreaming about possible future projects.

We started small, with wooden Christmas ornaments and carved pattern coasters, selling them in Christmas markets. The positive feedback from our customers inspired us to create more, so we finally decided to try and build up one of our bigger ideas. And now after some time and sweat, we can proudly present our very own set of animal design light objects.
It’s exhilarating to say, that this is just the beginning of our journey. We are ready to work hard and see where the future takes us.
