Following on from last month’s discussion with Naturalmat Co-founder Mark Tremlett, we explore sourcing materials and product quality.
How do you source your materials?
“We look at our suppliers very much holistically. The fact that their materials are right for us, is very much the start of the journey. There are many factors we then have to consider…do our suppliers operate in an ethical and sustainable way? Do our suppliers look after their staff and share our ethical approach? Frankly it’s not straight forward finding these partners and they very rarely offer the cheapest offering, but it’s a process that is ultimately fulfilling and we’ve ended up with business partners who we trust implicitly”
What do you consider to be the most important facet of your products?
“I often cite quality above sustainability as being the number one principle of our business simply because we believe the two things are completely symbiotic. Poor quality leads to a reduction in the lifespan of any product and it is this limited lifecycle which generates further production requirement. Ultimately if our products last, that this in itself has the biggest impact on reducing resource and energy requirement.”
