Redefining Furniture with Sustainability and Transparency
At Slow, we are passionate about creating exceptional quality sofas while embracing sustainable manufacturing practices, promoting radical transparency, and educating consumers about the unsustainability of conventional sofa manufacturing. Our mission is to reduce our impact on the environment, support local communities, and redefine the way we think about furniture consumption. Join us as we delve into the heart of what it means to design with purpose, educate for change, and make a positive difference in the world.
Designing Furniture to Last Generations
Slow was born amidst the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales, inspiring us to go beyond profit and consider the long-term impact of our choices. We design durable, timeless furniture using craftsmanship and the finest materials to withstand the test of time.
At Slow, quality is at the core of everything we do. Our sofas are constructed with certified beech wood from responsibly managed forests, supporting biodiversity and sustainability. We prioritise your health by using flame-retardant-free fabrics and avoiding foam in our production.
Nurturing staff, supporting local makers, and contributing to re-wilding schemes are key to our green approach. Through zero-waste manufacturing and sustainably sourced materials, we minimise our carbon footprint and support the local economy.
We value transparency and have trustworthy partnerships with suppliers who share our ethical values. We believe in providing openness about our practices, allowing you to make informed choices aligned with your values.
Educating for Change
Our goal is to shed light on unsustainable practices in the sofa industry. Conventional manufacturing involves harmful chemicals and materials that harm our health and the environment. Our blog provides insights into healthier alternatives and sustainable solutions.
Moving Forward Together
We acknowledge the ongoing journey towards sustainability and ethics. By aligning personal and business values, we invest in continuous improvement. Together, we strive for impactful and positive solutions that create lasting change in furniture consumption.
Together, let's challenge conventional practices, embrace timeless design, and foster a deep respect for our planet. Join us as we continue to design with purpose, educate for change, and pave the way for a greener future. Thank you for being a part of our community and for choosing Slow as your partner in conscious living.
