Our Environmental Philosophy


We are 100% committed to sustainable and ethical trading. Working only with suppliers who are good corporate members of society and do not exploit their workforces in any way, all of our factories have regular audits by accredited agencies. We strive wherever possible to use recycled packaging, and insist that all our suppliers review their environmental impact regularly, implementing any changes as soon as possible.


Our main materials:




Rubberwood, which we use for a number of our candle holders and charger plates, is often the most misunderstood species of wood in the industry. The name rubberwood invokes a variety of misconceptions as to its features and to its durability. Rubberwood (also called Parawood in Thailand) is the standard common name for the timber of Hevea Brasiliensis.

In fact, rubberwood is one of the more durable lumbers used in the manufacturing of today's home furnishings, and as such is a perfect choice for our candle holders and charger plates. As a member of the maple family, rubberwood has a dense grain character that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process. It has very little shrinkage making it one of the more stable materials availabe for furniture manufacturing. Like maple, rubberwood is a sap producing species. In the case of maple, it is sap; in the case of rubberwood, it is latex. Rubberwood produces all the latex used in the world for rubber based products.

One of the most important features of rubberwood is that it's the most ecologically friendly lumber used in the woodware industry. After the economic life of the rubber tree, which is generally 26-30 years, the latex yields become extremely low and the planters then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes it's latex producing cycle and dies. This wood is therefore extremely eco-friendly in the sense that our candle holders and charger plates are produced from what was once waste material.


American White Oak


White oaks are a group of closely related species that grow in the central eastern and north eastern States of the USA, with the major concentration being in the Appalachian mountain region. The major species, Quercus Alba, which we use for our candle holders and charger plates is similar to European oak in both appearance, characteristics, and properties. The resource is adequate to maintain ready availability to both domestic and international markets, and it is afforested under strict US government guidelines.




All our ceramic items are made from stoneware and are suitable for use in both the microwave and dishwasher. One of the main advantages of our stoneware dinnerware is its durability, so with the right care it will last for years to come. All pieces have been fired to high temperatures with very stain resistant glazes.

Please remember all stoneware should be heated and cooled gradually, as any sudden or extreme changes of temperature could result in the dinnerware breaking due to thermal shock.

Please also note that if inexpensive cutlery is used on our stoneware dinnerware, that is anything below 18/10 quality stainless steel, it could result in metal marking of the glazed surface. This is not the fault of the ceramic but is due to the deposition of steel from the cutlery.
