Every artwork we make is special to us and it's therefore very important to us to make sure they stay special wherever they might be found. That's why we put a lot of time and care into creating all the lovely things that are found in our little shop, and why you can always be sure whatever you might buy, it will always be something that we are truly proud of.
And we take the same care when it comes to making the actual items. Some of these we make ourselves in our wee workshop using the best quality parts and materials, and when we don't have the means to make it ourselves, we work with some of the best manufacturers around (who specialize in creating similar items for museums and galleries).
We also use environmentally friendly materials whenever we can for both our items and for our packaging, you can read more about this below.

We've been hard at work sourcing new suppliers & materials to make our shop more environmentally friendly and we are very glad to say we've been making some good progress! All our new edition art prints are printed on either Hahnemühle's Environmentally focused & resource saving Bamboo paper or on Hahnemühle's cotton Rag paper (it's made from the seed of the cotton plant which is a recycled by-product of the textile making process and has a very low envirmental impact).
We've also sourced some lovely cardboard that's made from 100% recycled paper (which has been awarded the Blue Angel Ecolabel - blauer-engel.de/en) for our new range of postcards. All our own printing, including
And all the item that we print in our own workshop (like our badges and mini magets) are printed on paper that are approved by the FSC (fsc.org) and made from from responsible sources.
But it's not just our products that are going green, it's our packaging materials too! All our padded envelopes are certified by the Rainforest Alliance (rainforest-alliance.org), the padding itself is made from 100% recycled plastic (PE) and the paper from both our padded and plain envelopes are approved by the FSC (fsc.org) for being made from responsible sources. The cardboard we use to protect our art prints are all cut from pre-used boxes and we have just sourced brown packaging paper (also used to package our art prints) that is approved by the EU Ecolabel (ecolabel.eu).
We know there is always room for improvement and we'll keep looking for alternatives until our whole shop is 100% green!
