Adventure Accessories - Gifts for Outdoors

Hi, I am Sarah, I created Adventure Accessories in 2018, based in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. Combining a passion for adventure with a love of crafts to make fun functional unique handcrafted gifts for outdoor enthusiasts.

I sell online worldwide and at local craft fair events and markets in Carmarthenshire. I welcome custom order requests so if you have an idea I look forward to working with you.

I have been crafting for many years, first with cross-stitch embroidery, then my hand-sewn notebook journals and taught myself to crochet in 2013.

I took voluntary redundancy to care full time for my youngest son when he was diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive cancer in 2016 aged 14. My crafts were and still are part of my therapy after I had a breakdown in 2017. I created my small business as an opportunity to work flexibly around my son's care needs and ongoing treatment since he relapsed in Sept 2017.

I have been adventuring since I was a child, from an active and creative family. Alongside adventures with Guides, Duke of Edinburgh and Scouting comes a love of craft making. As a parent and multiple dog owner when adventuring I wanted gloves to keep my hands warm but had to keep removing them to get an item from the backpack or to hold on to the dog lead so I decided to crochet my own fingerless mitts for people who want practical yet beautiful adventure accessories. I soon added ear warmer headbands, beanie hats, cowl scarves and lap blankets to the range.

I have used the harrowing effects of my son's cancer treatment and my own breakdown to create something positive and I hope to inspire others that may be on a similar path to use the creative craft process to bring some joy to dark days and the power of reconnecting with nature to balance your mental health and wellbeing for whatever life throws your way.

After all, life is an adventure. 🧭

    I created Adventure Accessories in 2018 when I took redundancy to care for my son as he receives ongoing cancer treatment. What began as a hobby to help my mental health, has grown to become a successful creative handmade business.

    Assistant

    My pawsome pals keep me company as I craft. Loki the GSD is head of security. Neo the Beagle is a general cleaner and will eat my scraps if he had the chance. Mojo the JRT is quality control. He would love to snuggle in on all my yarn if I let him.
