About Kindwood
Kindwood is an exciting start-up business located in Norfolk, producing a range of fireside essentials for primal comfort. With driven culture and a love for elegance and sustainability, we love the idea of enjoying life and putting comfort into everything we do.

Our range provides winter and summer products that look and feel lovely in and out of the home, from locally sourced and processed Kiln Dried Wood Fuels to Handcrafted in Norfolk Fire Pits.

Whilst Kindwood is a small start-up, we are snowballing and have seen exponential growth over the last 18 months. This is an opportunity to be a part of something exciting and new.

Who is Kindwood for?
We produce fireside essentials for people who appreciate and remember why fire is so important to us as human. People who enjoy old-age primal experiences away from their busy lives. People who want convenience and beautifully crafted products all in one.


A Kindwood Team Member
We are still small, yet we're (nearly) perfectly formed. We have 6 team members who have a desire and passion for selling the Kindwood brand. Our team members know how to turn up the volume, chase their dreams, squeeze more from every minute and opportunity. We want people who can think big but aren't afraid to roll their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Energetic people who love a challenge and who see barriers and constraints as opportunities. People who think beyond just their role, people who are passionate about building brands and categories from grassroots.
