Sustainable Home Scents

#1 Skandinavisk

Skandinavisk diffuser


A favourite if you follow any Scandi interior accounts, Skandinavisk are the home scents brand that creates candles and diffusers to set the scene in your home. Inspired by over 20 years of travelling across the Nordic region their scents are subtle and refined blended with local rich wood.

#1 Denby

Another of our most ethical brands is Denby which is the only UK company to produce its own clay for products made in the factory. A leading stoneware and pottery manufacturer for the past 200 years, Denby is rife with history. Any scraps of clay are recycled and crushed into a powder which is then pumped back into the production process. Denby is also a zero-to-landfill business, with the only materials sent out of the factory being used for roadwork improvements in the local area.
