Purpose driven goods for purpose driven people
Francli creates hardy work-wear and outdoor accessories, handcrafted in Britain for explorers and creators
From my farm workshop, just outside Falmouth, I design, cut and make outer wear, aprons, rucksacks and small carry goods, developed in close collaboration with my local community of creative and outdoors people.

I offer a bespoke commission service for both one-off pieces and small batches of Francli designs, tailored to specific craft, work and environment. Whether it’s a personalised rucksack for your next adventure or branded uniforms for your artisan business, I’d love to hear your story and ideas.
I’m part of a maker’s residency with designer/makers Felix McCormack, Sarah Johnson and Ellie Hughes at Folklore. We use the space to share ideas, collaborate and display our work.
In the shop, you can find a curated selection of clothing, aprons, phone cases, rucksacks, tote bags, and tool wraps:

I also offer a selective wholesale service for businesses that share Francli values. If you are interested in stocking my designs or collaborating with me on a unique range for your store, please get in touch.
These are the key insights that keep me focused:
Happiness in Pursuit of Mastery
I get so much joy and expression from making with my hands. I’m addicted to that feeling of progression. It’s what drives me to make the next thing, and the next.
Slow, Purpose-led Design
I don’t want to make objects for objects sake. My work is for functional and aesthetic longevity.
Re-connecting with Nature
It’s all too easy to get sucked into our phones and buying stuff we don’t need. All we really need is a good dose of wild winds, cold sea and warm sun!
The Power of Collaboration
The best ideas are collective ideas. Working with other people constantly challenges me and improves my designs.
