MADE IN THE HEART OF THE LAKE DISTRICT, UK
Our story is one of Graft and Craft, we work hard at producing beautiful objects from our local stone, using the skills of our forebears to reflect our pride.
We have been manufacturing on the slopes of Coniston Old Man for nearly half a century, you could say we’re hefted to this landscape.
We only use locally quarried stone, Westmorland sea green, Brathay blue/grey or Baycliff limestone, it’s all part of our attempt to keep our eco footprint as small as possible, we use hydro electric power from the beck running by our workshops and cool our polishers and cutters using that same beck water rather than oil. We do not use imported Brazilian or Chinese slate for 2 reasons,
1. It’s been transported halfway around the world
2. It’s not as good – on so many levels.
We re a small craft company that can tell you who made each piece and which quarry the stone came from, we believe that working hard and doing the right thing will help us keep producing beautiful pieces for another half century.
