Handcrafted wood interior pieces now in store

Posted by Derek Lamb on

Harvey Bruce are now offering hand made bespoke interior pieces within our showroom.

Each item has been hand made using a variety of wood grains and burrs.

A burl (American English) or burr (British English) is a tree growth in which the burr has grown in a deformed manner. It is commonly found in the form of a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch that is filled with small knots from dormant buds. Burl formation is typically a result of some form of stress such as an injury or a viral or fungal infection.

We have a collection of these items in store now so plan your visit today!

Harvey Bruce now FSC certified.

Posted by Derek Lamb on

Harvey Bruce are proud to announce that all Basswood venetian blinds and plantation shutters are supplied utilising FSC certified wood.


What is FSC?

FSC stands for 'Forest Stewardship Council'.  We are an international non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forestry. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards.

Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests are marked with our ‘tick tree’ logo. When you see this logo, you can be confident that buying it won’t mean harming the world’s forests.


How does the FSC system work?

Forests are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship. These inspections are undertaken by independent organisations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC. In order to be given FSC certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner. This is what makes the FSC system unique and ensures that a forest is well-managed from the protection of indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees. Forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC label.


How can I be sure that the product really is FSC-certified?

In addition to forest certification, the FSC system includes a certified chain of custody that tracks materials and products through every stage in the supply chain from the forest or point of reclamation to the point where it is finished and labelled. This is monitored through the invoicing process and the final label on the product has a code that confirms that the item is genuinely FSC.


What does the FSC label mean?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo on a forest product is your assurance that it is made with, or contains, forest-based materials from FSC-certified forests or reclaimed sources.


Which products carry the label?

In the UK the FSC label can be found on garden furniture, decking, sheds, conservatories, tools, bird boxes and bird tables, window blinds, plantation shutters, bathroom and general housewares, brushes, wall paper, flooring, doors, shelves, furniture, toilet tissue, paper, pencils, charcoal - in fact most things made from wood! The label can also be found on non-timber forest products such as natural latex, cork and bamboo.

Seatex - Sustainable fabric from ocean plastics by Harvey Bruce

Posted by Derek Lamb on

We’re surrounded by plastic. Just think about every piece we touch in a single day: shopping bags, food containers, straws, water bottles – the list is endless. We depend on plastic, but this comes at a steep price.

Have you heard of plastic pollution?

It’s a growing and worrying problem. In the first decade of this century, we produced more plastic than all the plastic ever produced in history up to the year 2000. And unfortunately, every year, millions of tons of that mass produced plastic ends up in the world’s oceans. In fact, it is estimated that we have six times more plastic than plankton in our oceans!

Most of us know little or even nothing about the devastation that occurs under the surface of the water. The durable nature of plastic can take hundreds of years to degrade.

But the problem with plastic pollution doesn’t just hurt marine species, it’s also harmful to us humans. As plastic debris floats in the seawater, it absorbs dangerous pollutants. These chemicals are highly toxic and have a wide range of chronic effects, including endocrine disruption and cancer-causing mutations. When animals eat plastic pieces, the toxins are absorbed into their body and passed up the food chain.

Basically, we are what we eat! Up to 1 in 3 fish caught for human consumption now contain plastic so this problem affects everyone.

In an attempt to make a difference to the growing problem of plastic infiltrating our oceans, Harvey Bruce has introduced Greenscreen Sea-Tex. This fabric has been developed using recycled shoreline plastic, which has been recovered from beaches, remote coastlines and inland waterways. The plastic is processed, and spun into Bionic yarn to be used within the woven structure of the Sea-Tex fabric.
