We love our beautiful planet!
We do everything we can to play our part in looking after it.
We think it's important as a business to share our green credentials so that our customers know we have the planet's interests at heart.
We make products that are built to last. By sourcing the best quality components it is intended that everything we make will be around for a very long time. This is backed up by our Free Repairs for Life Service.
A lot of research goes in to making sure we know where all our materials come from and that our suppliers share our responsible beliefs.
We aim to use every scrap of everything we buy. If fabric or leather off-cuts are too small to be of use to us, a lovely chap called Roy comes along from Scrappies in Church Stretton, England to take it for others to use.
We are big fans of cork, it is one of the most sustainable materials available and we have a cork option on most of our products. The cork industry needs support due to the decline in cork stopper usage. Read more about how WWF are helping these ancient forests.
