Rock & Saltwater are a family run business based in beautiful West Cornwall.

All of our designs start life in a little studio space looking out through trees towards the sea in West Cornwall.

The process often ends up being collaborative, with two little ones with artistic streaks, full of ideas and opinions! ("Why haven't you done a paint splats mug yet?" "Can we change the shop name to 'Open Wave'?") And we can never get away from the ever changing inspiration outside our window, or the rich artistic heritage of the place where we live.

Why we love what we do

We hand make the majority of our products and when we need specific print or technical expertise (laser etching for our mugs, for example) we work with carefully selected makers and companies in Cornwall, the South West and other parts of the UK. Our fabrics are printed used eco-friendly reactive dyes and we use non-toxic, water-based inks when screen and lino-printing. Our packaging is made from natural, recycled and recyclable materials.

We hope that our products bring you a little bit of the coast – whether it’s memories of drinking from enamel mugs around a campfire, or lying on the beach watching clouds pass overhead.
