Grown In Britain
Here at Simpson & Sand the ethos of sustainability is hugely important to us. With this in mind Sandy went to visit English Woodlands Timber based at Cocking Sawmills. As both foresters and millers they are at the heart of the Grown In Britain initiative and are among a growing number in the trade championing home grown hardwoods.
Where possible we use British grown timber for our furniture. Not only does this reduce the need for importing timber, but with strict provisions in-place the forestry is conducted sustainably. The timber is slow grown, a delight to work and we think makes beautiful furniture with a distinct style and identity..
