Our Impact

Furniture making and woodworking cannot be separated from the health of our woodlands and for us, a commitment to sustainability is a way to protect this relationship.

Made for life

We do not want to be part of a system where forests are exploited for ephemeral fashions and furniture that's not built to last.

Our furniture is made for life - designed to be sturdy, resillient and age with character. 

Reduce Waste 

As trees stubbornly refuse to grow in the shapes of furniture, there will always be offcut material.  We've designed a number of offcut jigs and templates that we incorporate into larger designs. Every few months, we make a range of smaller 'offcut' items' such as our beautiful chopping boards.

Invest in Cornwall

Sourcing timber locally isn't just about lowering carbon footprint, it's also about giving back to Cornwall. There is a long history of resources being removed from the Cornish landscape - the percentage tree-cover is only 2/3rs of that of the rest of England. By supporting local merchants we hope to contribute towards keeping a circular economy, and by sourcing timber from well-managed local woodlands and estates, to help fund the health and growth of our woodlands.

Vigilant Timber Sourcing

We source all of our timber from UK sustainably managed forests.

Whenever we can, we work with small, local, timber suppliers that can connect us with wood from managed woodlands and estates in Cornwall. 

Support Local Woodlands

We are lucky enough to have a fantastic sustainably managed woodland right on our doorstep. Devychoys Wood is managed by Working Woodlands Cornwall and is about 2 miles away from our workshop. They are specialists in agroforestry, woodland management and regeneration. We have ongoing projects with WWC and a small range of furniture that comes directly from Devychoys Wood.

10% of all profits from this range go back to Working Woodlands Cornwall.

Sustainability Goals for 2024

We're a young company, and plan to extend our sustainability reach as we grow.

A huge goal we hope to reach next year is to partner with a Cornish woodland regeneration project, such as Plant One Cornwall, so a percentage of our profits can go directly back in to the future of Cornish woodlands.

“We need acts of restoration, not only for polluted waters and degraded lands, but also for our relationship to the world. We need to restore honor to the way we live, so that when we walk through the world we don’t have to avert our eyes with shame, so that we can hold our heads up high and receive the respectful acknowledgment of the rest of the earth’s beings.”
