Rag & Bone Bros are 2 brothers who started out as collectors and scrappers of all sorts of salvaged metal. We began hoarding all the quality and cool items we salvaged, until we came to a point where we just had to sell them and embarked on the business of selling antiques, vintage and anything we thought was quality and cool.  We now travel all over the UK hunting everywhere we can for those amazing quality items we like to call treasure.

We also travel to Europe (France, Belgium, Holland and especially Germany...) and now, slowly into Eastern Europe, where we have a group of treasure hunters we work with who search tirelessly for those quality items.  We also specialise in using everything we find.  We will hunt for old bits of wood and rusty bits of metal, so when we refurbish anything, it will always be with salvaged, aged and original pieces.  Nothing is wasted.
