Process

Meticulous research goes into where we source our materials, so the making process of your furniture is as natural as can be.

We use traditional techniques with quality and comfort in mind, replacing harmful materials along the way to create an eco-friendly heirloom of furniture for your home, because we’re aware that this isn’t prioritised enough in the making of modern furniture. So, it’s important for us that you’re just as aware as we are about our making process, so you can feel assured you’re contributing to an environmentally friendly living.

Step 1.

Our FSC beechwood timber is sustainably sourced, and handmade into our frames.

This makes for a perfect base for all our other eco-friendly furniture materials. Modern upholstery uses chipboard, cardboard and timber to make furniture frames, which is not eco-friendly and its lifespan isn’t as long. What’s more, we’ve partnered with the National Trust and we are committed to planting a tree with every sale we make.

Step 2.

We use mesh top spring units, the most superior springing system you can have.

Our spring units are made from 100% steel, which can be easily recycled after their long life in a sofa. This is unlike many modern sofas and chairs that use elasticated webbing, which has a limited lifespan.

Step 3.

Next, we use 100% natural and compostable hessian lining and jute webbing.

Modern upholstery uses polypropylene lining derived from crude oil which is non renewable. It is also not an eco friendly material in furniture, as it turns into microplastics over time and proceeds to enter water sources.

Natural Hessian, rubberised hair for eco friendly furniture.

Step 4.

We use rubberised hair is 40% natural latex, 30% animal hair and 30% coco fibre.

There are no harsh chemicals in this eco friendly alternative, unlike most modern upholstery.

100% natural, eco-friendly materials.

Step 5.

We use naturally fire retardant, sustainable wool as our wadding, as well as cotton.

Modern upholstery often uses polyester felt. This is a synthetic, petroleum-based fibre, making for a carbon-intensive, non-renewable resource.

Feather and down inners, natural and non toxic.

Step 6.

Pick from a choice of cushion fillings.

Feathers for our ethically sourced cushions are gathered as a bi-product and they provide a soft, sink-in comfort. If you prefer your seating to be a little firmer, we also offer wool cushion inners as an alternative.

100% latex foam core material.

Pick from a choice of cushion fillings.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for the perfect balance of comfort and support, we can use 100% natural latex foam core. Because this is placed in between an eco feather and down wrap, you can still enjoy plenty of comfort.

Step 7.

Pick from our collection of natural or recycled fabrics.

We have curated a selection of linens, cotton velvets and recycled cottons for you to choose from, specially chosen to fit any style of home. There are no harsh chemicals and we make sure not to use FR treatment on our fabrics.
