Meg Hawkins Collection
New for 2020 - H20 Collection of Re-Usable Copper Water Bottles

  One of our main new collections for 2020, our H2O Collection, was created due to our determination to make a difference after our recent visit to see our suppliers in India. During the visit we saw first-hand the devastating effects of plastic pollution and the miles of mountains of plastic waste it creates.

How our Fair Trade Recycled Aluminium Bowls and Coasters are made

There are many individual stages in making these completely handmade recycled aluminium bowls and coasters and the beauty and exceptional quality and finish of these products is due to the skill and care taken by the artisans during each stage of the process. Stage 1 - Sand Casting the shape of the product The recycled aluminium is melted down in a charcoal fire pit. A sand mould in the shape of the product is then prepared before the melted aluminium is poured in the sand cast.
