From wreaths grown on organic farms in Northern California to artisan-crafted recycled glassware from Mexico and bowls created from sustainable tree farms in Thailand, this season we’re inspired by products with purpose that celebrate true sustainability.
Set your table in style with unique, handcrafted pieces that elevate a simple dinner with friends to something remarkable.
Forested Woods
Sustainable wood protects biodiversity, water quality and the land. We find certified or sustainable wood products that have positive environmental histories, from start to finish, including many certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
From mango wood harvested at the end of its fruiting life to teak from slow-growth sustainable plantations to overgrowths of acacia, our wood is from sustainable sources. Some are FSC certified; others are fair-trade and support local farmers and economies.
This is the story of sustainability. Looking at how each piece fits in the whole picture, and choosing the path that best preserves the planet.
