Made with green-fingers: the champions of longevity and eco-friendly practice.
Each and every one of our Tom Raffield products are handmade using sustainable, ecological and low-energy practices. With enduring design qualities, our range is crafted and built to stand the test of time. We hone in on a few of our design favourites to discover and review their durable, sustainable characteristics.
Refreshing in its simplicity, surprising in its design, our Hanter Lighting Range turns heads. Originally only available in just the table light design, the Hanter has since been developed into a wall light that launched as part of our AW/17 collection.
Steam bent from solid FCS controlled oak, each product belonging to the Hanter range is made entirely from wood that originates from certified forests. By using FSC wood our business endorses the incredibly important work carried out by major environment charities such as WWF, Greenpeace and the Woodland Trust and ensures that a higher number of trees are planted in replacement of any wood taken from a forest.
The Hanter Lighting Range, like the Skipper and No.1, is made by practising a dry assembly method. No glue or harmful chemicals are used whilst making the lights and each Hanter is screwed together using only manpower and finished with an eco-friendly, natural matt varnish.
Good things come in threes. Modern. Refined. Enticing. Our handmade range of wall, floor and table Wheal lights bring sophistication into any space. An alluring contrast of sustainably sourced wood, metal and light, the Wheal range illuminates’ specific areas and allows you to layer light or create drama in your interior.
The wooden stem of every Wheal light we make uses either unseasoned or air-dried timber and is steam bent using traditional, low-tech methods. Each Wheal light is completely handcrafted by a member of our workshop team from start to finish and due to it’s carefully considered quality, will last over a lifetime.
Furthermore, every light in our Wheal range can be purchased with or without a Tala lightbulb. Tala implement the latest energy-saving technology when creating their lightbulbs and champion materials and techniques that have a minimal impact on the environment. Tala’s business ethos is to strive for a transparent, carbon-neutral supply chain – an ethos which we whole-heartedly admire and support. Furthermore, Tala’s ‘Ten Trees’ programme has contributed to the planting of 9,000 trees within the UK alone and plans to plant a target of 35,000 trees by April 2018, a programme we are proud to support by supplying their bulbs with our Tom Raffield designs.
