How We Make Montage 2021

How we make

A few years back I met an award-winning gin maker who foraged all his botanicals locally from Lancashire and Cumbria. Looking on one’s doorstep seemed like a great idea and I wondered if I could do the same. Could I ‘forage’ all my materials and skills locally? I set about finding everything I needed within a 50-mile radius of Manchester.

I’m passionate about supporting local manufacturers and suppliers as well as trying to seek out the most sustainable materials that are a little kinder on the planet. My beautiful wools come from one of Yorkshire’s oldest mills, and my upholstery materials are sourced right down the road. The wood is local and FSC-certified, and Phil, our extraordinary Wood Man here in Manchester, flawlessly hand-turns every leg and lamp. You could say I take a ‘super-local’ approach.

Why? The benefits go beyond aesthetics:

  • Unmatched quality: Locally sourced materials ensure greater control, resulting in furniture built to last.
  • Community Impact: Your purchase supports local artisans, keeping heritage skills alive.
  • Minimal footprint: With materials travelling short distances, our carbon footprint shrinks.
  • Eco-conscious choices: No foam, only natural fillings like coir and recycled wool. Our wool fabric and cushion pads are inherently fire retardant and hypo-allergenic so no nasty chemicals there either.
  • Minimal packaging: Reusing old bubble wrap and cardboard. This is mostly donated by our local deli, which also sells deliciously warm Pain au Chocolat!

Confidence in our craft? We offer a Lifetime Guarantee* on furniture frames.
