Sustainability

We are proud to be a 100% British-made brand.

 

Our printed fabrics are printed in England onto British-woven linen union. We print everything digitally, a process which has several environmental benefits over more traditional methods: it uses significantly less water, power and has a much smaller carbon footprint than traditional printing. Digital printing also enables us to print to order which massively reduces potential fabric waste - our minimum order is just one metre. 

The little waste we do have - namely off-cuts from cushion-making and sampling - we re-purpose into our small fabric birds, which are made entirely from fabric remnants.  We also actively encourage our stockists and customers to return unwanted samples. 

Our woven designs are woven using Flax in a family-run mill in Suffolk which has been in operation since 1720.

 

All of our packaging is re-used where possible and we use recycled card envelopes for all of our samples.

 

We believe in supporting local small businesses like ourselves - all of our marketing material and stationary is printed by our Glastonbury-based printer onto high quality recycled card and our cushions are made for us high up on the Mendip Hills.
