We are continuously striving to improve our systems and processes, to design 'out' waste and find a new purpose for any material that we no longer need.
For many years our creative director Ella Doran has been an advocate of the circular economy. You can read more about her and her projects at elladorandesigner
If you buy from us on line, you will know we re-use our packaging as much as possible, and we encourage all of our customers to continue the chain and keep materials in use.
We strive to use materials that are long lasting and age well, along with sourcing materials that are already in their second life or third life when possible.
We offer a 'take back' service with our made to measure roller blinds, we will take back your old ones to ensure the components can be re-used or recycled. Please email us if you would like more information here.
We re-use all of our end-of-line fabrics and wallpapers for workshops & events, and when possible, we make new products.
