We choose raw materials that can be ethically sourced, re-used and recycled. We ensure each piece is traceable, from design to delivery.
Brass is a versatile binary alloy composed of copper and zinc. It is both a practical and precious metal, and makes for an ethical alternative to gold.
Our artisans source the brass we use from a variety of places, including waste facilities, before it is melted, poured and hammered by hand.
All the brass is free of nickel, lead and cadmium – we make sure contaminants are removed in the recycling and purification process.
Our reclaimed cow horn is sourced from local farms where it would otherwise be thrown away.
The dust left over after grinding and shaping the horn is used as fertilizer.
We use surplus dead-stock leather in our beaded pendants and trinket trays.
The glass seed beads used in our jewellery are selected for their quality and complete re-usability.
We use recycled fibres from plastic flour and rice sacks as thread for our beading.
Durat is a solid surface material, created from post-industrial plastic waste.
The plastic is granulated into tiny chips, creating a gorgeous terrazzo look and also allows Durat to reclaim all waste during the manufacturing process.
