When we design things, we want our end product to be good for the maker, good for the buyer, and good for the earth. We are conscious of where our materials come from and where they may end up in the future. For these reasons, we only source metal and wood that is recycled, fair-mined, or sustainably harvested and we try to work in materials that can be reworked or recycled in the future. We would hate the thought that we are creating more "stuff" in the world destined to landfill. Our objects are meant to last, be passed on, and if nothing else, repurposed. All silver and gold is sourced from Hoover and Strong, the industry leader in ethical sourcing and refining practices, and is certified 100% recycled. All diamonds are conflict-free. As for wood, we have a supply of wood from naturally felled trees and cut-offs we've collected over the years. Working on a small scale allows us to exclusively use recycled and repurposed material and limit our impact on the environment. Hooray!
