A massive welcome from all of us here at RUFFTER HQ!! We are a small team of 3, (Tony, Mieles & Arlo) based in Cornwall, UK.
Tony designs and makes all of our products in his very messy / totally organised workshop. Mieles is the creator and driving force behind all of our social media content... whilst Arlo busies himself with a host of jobs.
Including, but is not limited to - ripping up everything within reach into shreds, waking everyone in the neighbourhood up before sunrise, refusing to pose for selfies with his Dada, stealing socks, chasing leaves and dare we mention his ability to clear a room with his smells!!
Arlo is also the biggest bringer of joy, happiness and fun times to our lives and he is the main inspiration for what we do here at RUFFTER.
BUILT TO LAST
All of RUFFTER'S products are designed and built to withstand everything that our favourite pets have to throw at us!
We use furniture graded birch plywood and treat each product with Danish oil. This gives you a super strong product, that is food safe and super easy to keep clean.
We also think very carefully about how each product will be used on a daily basis and more importantly why the product even exists in the first place!
Combining quality materials along with these design techniques, ensures that our products look great, remain functional day to day whilst also giving the owner confidence that our products will last the test of time
RUFFTER HQ is based in Cornwall, UK and we firmly believe in working with real people and supporting real businesses. We want to engage with people in our local communities that we can meet in real life, share our experiences with and not just someone on the end of a phone or email address.
That's why we try to work with as many local traders and suppliers as possible when creating our products. Not only does this help us get to know other people and businesses in our communities, but we also find that the end product is often far superior than the more "budget friendly" far eastern options.
"Our purpose as a business is to enhance the lives of our four legged friends - By producing fun & unique products, that are functional and are built to last years, not months. We produce as much as we can in house, use only local suppliers when required and ship everything directly from our workshop in Cornwall, UK"
