Our hair pins are carefully handcrafted from reclaimed, recycled or waste wood. We store and season wood cut from gardening and woodland projects, gather off-cuts left over from carpentry workshops and give these often rare and expensive premium hardwoods a new life. Although it seems like a very small gesture we'd like to hope that by saving these woods from the fire pile we can help to highlight the rarity and ecological importance of these Great trees.
All the pins are finished with Nutshell wax. The product is eco friendly and non toxic, blending selected beeswax, Larch oil and essential oils to give your hairpin years of protection. It also uses no VOC's, formaldehyde or petrochemicals.
We are always striving to improve our processes environmentally. Hand tools are used over power tools where possible and sanding etc. is kept to a minimum.
