Nether Wallop Trading design and develop innovative, eco-friendly kitchen and garden tools and gifts.
The idea for Nether Wallop Trading came about when, due to over-enthusiastic seed buying and planting typical of a new gardener, the founder was faced with the problem of not having enough pots for her seedlings. And like many gardeners, she was unwilling to discard the ‘spares’.
Keen to garden organically, to minimize environmental impact, and to use the principles of reduce, reuse, recycle, she designed the Paper Potter, initially making it on a wood-turning lathe.
She created a tool which used up old newspapers by turning them into biodegradable pots which didn’t cost a penny and had the added bonus of saving her from carting stacks of newsprint to the recycling bins! The Paper Potter was the inspiration for starting up Nether Wallop Trading and, over the years, they have added many more innovative, beautifully crafted tools to their range.
Many of their products are based on traditional designs, sometimes adding a modern twist. Their wooden products are all made from sustainably managed (FSC) wood or from salvaged wood. All their products are rigorously tested before putting them on sale.
