We work with natural and recycled materials with a focus on sustainable methods of production, and this shapes our collections. We see the beauty in natural materials, from golden hemp and jute to sustainable mango wood. We make use of the waste leftover from other industries, including cotton from discarded t-shirts, recycled glass, metals, and textiles. Recycling allows us to create new and beautiful products. We allow the natural character and texture of the raw materials to speak for themselves.
We are on a journey to lead the way with ethical homewares, considering our environmental impact by using eco-friendly materials, valuing, and sustaining handmade traditional skills through fair and transparent relationships with our suppliers, whilst working towards mutual success.
There is still a lot more work to do but we are committed to doing better and working hard towards our goals.
We celebrate the handmade process using low impact methods to create our collections. The relationship between an artisan and a beautiful handmade piece creates a story, which makes each product not a mass market item, but an individually crafted piece. The traditional skills used by our suppliers have been handed down from generation to generation. We value this ae-old knowledge and hope to help keep it alive. We love the character in each item, and believe it is the unique handmade nature of our products that provides our point of difference.
We work with independent businesses, social projects, and co-operatives with a focus on building strong business relationships with all our suppliers, so that we can work together towards mutual success. Our primary focus is transparency, we see our suppliers more as partners and encourage open dialogue and communication. We make regular visits and employ agents who also visit our suppliers often, to assist with production queries and offer support and advice. We believe that trading fairly provides an opportunity to build a future. It helps businesses develop and creates sustainable employment.
