As an environmentally conscious design studio, we've reduced our carbon footprint (wherever possible) by operating electronically + preferring to use suppliers who; are RDS/RWS certified/ support fair-trade/ adopt ethical practices/ supply recycled or salvaged material/ use low toxicity adhesives/ specify low voc paints + products that minimise harmful waste.
In addition to uncompromising quality, animal welfare is + will continue to be a key consideration. We've opted to use down + feather as a luxury filling in our cushion inserts after an extensive investigation into other fibres, materials + synthetic processes could not produce equal or better results. Until such a discovery is made, natural down is expected to remain in global high demand for the forseeable future. Which is why we choose RDS + RWS certified products for our range of soft furnishings. The down + feather used in our cushion inserts is from an ethical + certified source. Certified by a third-party certification organization, Textile Exchange ensures responsible sourcing + practices throughout the down feather supply chain, from gosling to end product. We'll continue to develop future collections with the same ethos + standards.
Our principle aim for Belle Abode Interiors is to meet consumer expectation of luxury goods, whilst maintaining integrity + wherever possible, certified standards in the welfare of animals + compliant labour practices. These imperative principles are a key consideration in choosing the right supply chain of fibres + materials used in our collection. Whilst we may not exclusively use organic, vegan-friendly textiles, we do not condone the inhumane treatment of animals or exploitation of children for the production of textiles.
