Local MP Jo Swinson recently visited Reza Wood Designs, a woodwork and design studio that recycles old whisky barrels into furniture and objects like clocks, cufflinks and pens.
Reza Wood Designs is an award-winning Scottish woodcraft and furniture business founded in 2014 by couple Ali Fakourpoor and Jenifer Martin. Their products are designed and made by Ali in his woodworking studio at the foot of the Campsie Fells.
Jo commented after her visit:
"Reza Wood Designs is an exciting and innovative business, combining sustainability with Scottish heritage. It was heartening to hear how this fantastic business has arisen from Ali and Jenifer’s talents and hard work.”
"We were delighted to welcome Jo to our woodworking studio. She showed great interest in how our whisky barrel gifts and furniture are designed and despatched to our customers around the world. We really appreciate support like this for our small business."
