    Currently out of stock, but will be back in by the begining of next week.

    Fireplace bellows are the best way to breathe new life into dying embers or to light a new fire.

    So given the popularity of wood burning stoves and open fires you would have thought in this modern era it would be easy to find well designed contemporary fire bellows.

    But it isn’t. For some reason fireplace bellows have fallen out of favour with traditional craftsmen in the UK and modern designers have been reluctant to tackle fireside products. Which is why we were so pleased to come across these beautifully made, sleek modern bellows which are designed and manufactured in the Black Forest in southern Germany. They do everything you would want of a pair of bellows, with the leather lung providing a gentle puff or a longer blast depending on the vigour of your action.  And when not in use, they look very elegant left by your fireside. 

    An ideal fireside accessory for a contemporary wood burner or for a more traditional fireplace where you want to add a more modern touch.

    Review by Jeffrey Vilarino

    Well this little device is well worth it ! Simplicity and functional. The lost art of firemaking must have it's come back with this handsome tool.

    Great product, great service

    Review by Annie Tytherleigh

    Having trawled through 100"s of twee bellows on line looking for something that was not reminiscent of a 17thC Coaching Inn, it was a joy to find this. The bellows are funky and functional. Hen & Hammock are efficient and offer some fantastic products. (Posted on 28/01/2015)

    Holzschnefler

    Holzschnefler

    Makers of fireside bellows in the Black Forest

    The holzschnefler are the wood craftsmen of the Schwarzwald area of Germany.  The holzschnefler have played an important role in the community of the Black Forest since the Middle Ages, skilfully making a wide range of wooden products including pails, mouse traps, building materials and cuckoo clocks. 

    Today Jutta Rothe has introduced contemporary design to some of these craftsmen, who now make products that have a wonderful blend of traditional craft skills with a modern aesthetic.

    The fireside bellows are made in a small workshop in Bernau. At first the two sides of the bellows are hand cut out of oak, which is then drilled, sanded and polished. The oak is then oiled to emphasise its beautiful grain. Afterwards the leather is cut and fixed to the top of the bellow with nails. The metal nose is then fitted and the bellows are complete!
