ETHICS & SUSTAINABILITY

In an industry that is historically high in waste and emissions, we are committed to taking responsibility for our actions and protecting our surroundings,

prioritising materials that are non-toxic and responsibly sourced, and focussing on how our processes can have minimal impact, without compromising on design and quality.  By choosing high quality materials we ensure that our pieces stand the test of time, rather than encourage a throwaway culture.  There is always much more that can be done towards a sustainable future. However, we strive to constantly learn and evolve, keeping our finger to the pulse on what our part can be in ensuring our environment is safe and clean in years to come. We will continue to focus on our supply chain and social responsibility, developing a sustainable practice and implementing eco-friendly methodology at every step of the way.
