About Us

Family behind Love Bradbury

Handcrafted wooden housewares hand finished with love, from our family to yours.

At Love Bradbury, we take recycled timber and lovingly create beautiful wooden items for your home. From our farm in the Manawatu, our family create houseware and gifts for your family, with love.

At times, it feels like we live in a plastic, disposable world. Mass-produced products dominate the marketplace, and it can be challenging to unearth original, eco-friendly, handcrafted gifts that will be treasured for years to come.

In these changing times, sustainable and responsible purchasing decisions are needed – now more than ever. Enter Love Bradbury!

We offer hand finished wooden housewares and gifts that stand the test of time.

Our Story

Welcome to Love Bradbury, our cherished family business that operates out of our rustic farm shed in Apiti – a small town in Manawatu, New Zealand.

We are Philippa and Mike Croad, and we bought this business in 2019. We operate a farm here as well as running Love Bradbury. Life is busy, but that’s just how we like it.

Our three young children love being in the workshop with us as we design, craft and hand finish your wooden wares – so each one truly is sent with love from our family to yours.

It’s important to us that our customers love their products as much as we love making them. From replying to your first query to hand finishing each order and offering affordable shipping, nurturing positive relationships with our customers is a priority.

Using recycled timber such as rimu, we create bespoke, NZ-made height charts and homewares that stand the test of time.
