The Perch Range was borne out of necessity one day on a Nordic walk in the Northumberland countryside. Needing something to sit on that was water resistant, easy to carry and pleasing, founder Ruth Jacobs, searched for something suitable on the market for walkers, campers, hikers, outdoor activities, day trippers, etc., without success. She decided to have a go herself - this was the eureka moment.
The personal Pixy and Pocket Perches can fit into a pocket or small bags and weigh less than an average mobile phone.
The Poly Perch can sit up to 2 people and comes with a handy loop for hooking with a carabiner clip to secure on rucksacks.
The Pet Perch can be used for your favorite pet to sit on when out and about, or in the car, or home. It keeps surfaces free from damp, dirty paws and is warm a comfy to nestle on.
The Picnic Perch is the perfect alternative to a weighty picnic blanket and seats up to 4 comfortably, with two handles for ease of carrying.
The products are handmade and have short runs of individual cover designs which increases the uniqueness of each run, once they're gone, they're gone.
