“We love beautiful and ethical furniture.”
Andrew & Tarhata Watson
"Environmental welfare is not a luxury for a few, but the responsibility of all."
We have integrated principles of Ecological Awareness into the core business routines and processes. Awareness and Mindfulness in our market is based on the principle of knowing the basis around each decision is made and, wherever possible, its impact. This includes discussions with clients and designers regarding their requirements to ensure, wherever possible, the client’s remit is achieved within these principles to the required budget.
Our objective is to work to a set of principles for furniture manufacturing, which are based on real and viable business decisions.
Watson & Partner
Created by, Andrew & Tarhata
Watson & Partner company, invite people from all areas of life to join them in their quest for luxury furniture, made with up to 100% environmental-friendly materials.
Always on the lookout for interesting materials made from FSC certified timber, and even the components that do not naturally grow in Europe (such as Rattan) are sourced from trusted suppliers incorporating anti-slavery policy and safe working environments.
Strongly believing, that sustainable and environmentally-aware manufacturing:
- fulfils high levels of recycling and sustainability,
- has low environmental impact and,
- can meet design integrity.
“Now is the time to create something new”
Andrew & Tarhata Watson, Founders
Wherever possible we will manufacture within the same country as the final destination for the furniture. Where these facilities are not present and/or the material required is not locally available, we will look to source at the next closest material producer and/or manufacturer.
Ethical Supply Partners
Rather than choosing the lowest cost and potentially most environmentally damaging suppliers, we will work with companies that are environmentally aware. Be it using renewable energy, recycled water, recycled packaging etc. We are constantly detailing our full supply chain along with their ecological credentials, so we can maintain a continuous improvement plan for both, us and our supply partners, in order to produce the highest quality product at a commercial price with the lowest impact.
The necessity for Ecological Awareness will only grow, not diminish. This is therefore not a destination but a collaborative journey between client, designer and suppliers. The need is for continuous review and improvement of our core principles and processes, as well as communication of these improvements to all our associates of what can and should be achieved.
