About Brave Staves

BraveStaves is a small family business. Carla is the person behind the idea of creating the business, BraveStaves. Carla was just 14 when she imagined the idea, it was during Scotland's first lockdown at the end of June 2020, where she, like many teenagers, was bored sitting about the house.

Carla's mum and grandad are both fond of Scotland's national drink - they are joint owners of the Whisky Blog, whiskyboys.com. So, when Carla approached her mum with the idea, she was delighted and offered to help.

From the outset Carla was adamant that BraveStaves should only work with used and retired whisky staves (nothing new). These initial staves, after some special treatment, were turned into sustainable oak trays which were to be sold on BravesStaves new Etsy store.

Carla initially wanted to use the oak trays predominantly to hold candles for a table centre piece. Once the initial product was created, Carla and her mum quickly realised these would be ideal for a whisky drinker to use for their own whisky glass or perhaps share a few whiskies with friends with one of the larger flight trays.

Over just a few months BraveStaves now has 16 products in the store but Carla is always looking for ideas on where to take the product range next. So, if you have something in mind that would go well with a stave, simply contact us and we work to create that for you.
