Our partners

We love finding people working in sustainable ways or with tricky materials that can’t easily be returned to nature – people determined to override single-use. When this happens, we bring them into the fold. We carefully store and supply the very best from our warehouse in Rye. You can also see our surfaces in person in our material studio in London Fields or at Material Source in Manchester, UK.
