I try and make as many products by hand if I can, but I do have to out source the production of some of the products. Here at Particle Press I believe in supporting UK manufacturing, and take great care to ensure that all our products are produced to the highest standard. We carefully select manufacturers from across the UK to make our products, down to the woven labels and swing tags you find on all our products.
My digital range of products are printed in the north of England, and our tea towels and aprons are sewn up in to products in the factory, by their excellent machinists. The woven hem labels and packaging for the textiles is also made in Britain.
Lampshades, cushions and zip bags are all made here in Cornwall, just outside Falmouth.
My screen printed range of products are printed in-house at my studio in Cornwall, using eco-friendly inks. The ink that we use to print the textiles is water-based which has virtually no impact on the environment and we ensure that all chemicals used in the cleaning processes are environmentally safe.
All our cards are printed in London, and are printed on to FSC board.
WHAT IS FSC PAPER?
The FSC's (Forest Stewardship Council) is an organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The FSC logo indicates paper which has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. By buying FSC you are helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come. It is even recognised by WWF as the “hallmark of responsible forest management”.
