Jak. Natural Designs

Small batch, sustainable wooden goods, intentionally made in the mountains.

Jak. Natural Designs is a one-woman, self-taught woodworking and woodturning venture that focuses on creating small-batch and high-quality functional art. I am Jackie; the woodworker, designer and creator of Jak. Natural Designs.

My mission with Jak. Natural Designs is essentially to bring people joy. By creating handmade wares that are equal parts beautiful as they are functional, my goal is that my pieces will be a representation of living a life in the same way my goods are made: with intention, with passion and exceptionally.

I have a huge focus on environmental sustainability throughout every aspect of my business. Plant-based wood finish, plantable seeded cards, recycled and plastic-free shipping, shopping locally for supplies whenever possible and most importantly, ethically sourcing wood; are some of the many ways in which Jak. Natural Designs is doing its part to better this planet.

By primarily using foraged timber, I love giving new life to our precious natural resources as well as incorporating whatever journey the tree has already been on, into my designs. There is always beauty to be found within nature’s flaws and imperfections.

I consider every piece created by Jak. Natural Designs to be an extension of nature and a symbol of inherent beauty – intended to bring a sense of serenity, delight and wonder into the space in which it resides.
