Kenzo Crafts is a home based business that is friendly and very approachable.
I started creating using my kitchen table back in 2006.

So who's the team? well there's me Nicole and my son Steve.

We've started to supply to businesses around the UK at trade and this is proving extremely popular.
Most of our private sales are sourced from repeat or recommended custom
or customers who received one of our products and is looking to purchase for themselves.

The early days.... I am a trained hairdresser but had to give up my trade due to family commitments a few years ago.
I needed an income so turned a hobby into a business 
Kenzo Crafts was created!
It is known to friends and family as KC which always  makes me think of Kentucky Fried Chicken for some reason, so needless to say I'm always hungry.........

Kenzo Our Golden Retriever
This is where the name for the business came from - our retriever Kenzo.
When I was trying to decide on a suitable name for the business he came trotting into my room and laid across my feet. OK I thought, why not.?  ...... Kenzo Crafts began!

I must also mention and pay respects to my Jess our black lab she was so loyal following me around everywhere needless to say I tripped over her a fair bit!

Each handcrafted plaque starts it's life as a 8ft x4ft sheet
My most common material used is Birch Plywood 9mm.
This is at the very top end of the plywood market and cannot be beaten in quality.
We also use MDF when we want a to obtain a different surface finish.

It is then cut to shape 
We then sand  & paint it 3 times
It is now ready for your instruction!
The back of the plaques look just as good as the front as the bare wood is lightly sanded to give a natural but beautiful finish, making them ideal keepsakes.
Our outdoor plaques are painted both sides and have the added bonus of position of the holes or no holes at all.
