Our journey

Our commitment to great Artisan Design has extended into making better business choices that minimise our Social & Environmental impact on people and the planet. We want to make a real difference now & for the future. The Journey will hold many challenges but we are committed to adopting & evolving our business along the Journey to support the Social & Environmental needs. The journey started many years ago and will continue into the future.


 

Responsibly Sourcing

You will understand that sustainability begins with responsible sourcing. So “How” are we doing this? We will ensure that our key materials create less environmental and impact on local communities and the planet. Working very closely with selected chosen partners through to who understand our core values. It’s not simply our business strategy, but our moral obligation. “We’re committed to sourcing materials that have less impact on people and the planet.”


 

Timber

All Timber that will used for our future products will be crafted from wood. Wood being a strong, natural material we use to make a wide variety of products. The Artisans we having been working with for over 40 years will be creating Amazing & Beautiful Handmade products. Our ongoing journey has always been to ensure we are always a responsible retailer now & in the future, committed to making our timber sourcing more sustainable and transparent. That’s why we’re working hard to ensure that our timber comes from responsibly managed forests.


Cotton

We will be using Cotton as one of our key materials, which will be used in our new product ranges. A natural, renewable plant fibre, which will be used in our new product ranges. However, it’s also a climate-intensive crop linked to pollution, high water usage and worker exploitation. To help reduce some of these environmental impacts, we’ve set ourselves a goal to ensure our cotton’s sourced more sustainably.


Animal Derived Materials (ADMs)

We will be using use a number of different animal-derived materials in our new product ranges, like wool, leather & feathers. We are working very closely with our suppliers to ensure that our suppliers meet our minimum requirements and our long term commitments.


 

Material innovations

Material innovation a very changeling area has always been a key player to us and we are constantly exploring ways of working with suppliers who specialise in new materials.


 

Product packaging

We’re committed to making better choices so when you receive our products it’s easier to dispose of the packaging responsibly. Some of our products are very fragile and need to have very protective packaging, so we are always looking at innovative ways of reducing the amount of packaging we use but at the same time protecting the products we deliver to you. The majority of our Packaging’s paper products are biodegradable, particularly those created using the kraft method that is less processed than other varieties. For example, our hivewrap is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. This dual quality enables consumers to recycle the material at home or should they fail to do this, your business can rest assured that the product will break down naturally with minimal harm to the environment.


 

Responsible packaging

As a business we understand there has to be delicate balance in our journey between protecting our products on there way to you and to prevent potential. We have been trying very hard to reduce the amount of packaging that you will receive but at the same time trying to ensure the products are safe within the packaging protected.


 

We’re different by design

“Working very closely with our chosen suppliers, we design and develop the highest quality Handmade products using carefully considered and selected materials.” Our goal is always been in creating “YOUR” home into “YOUR dream home, with some of the most Amazing & Beautiful Handcrafted made by some the best Artisans in the World, with some very Exclusive Product ranges, which in some caesx have taken near a year to finalize.
