Wearth London
50 Keswick Road, Great Bookham, Surrey KT23 4BH

Wearth London is the go-to online department store for shoppers who want to buy stylish, modern eco-friendly furniture for their homes. Our furniture is made by designer-makers in the UK using sustainable/reclaimed/upcycled timber and pieces you'll find include upcycled wine crate bookcases, tables, kitchen pegboards, shelving, side tables and seating. Our upholstered wine crate ottomans are particularly useful because not only can you sit on them but lift the lid and you'll find generous storage space. So for furniture with eco brilliance, character and individuality, spend time perusing Wearth London.

And a feature of our store that customers love is that they can search for products using criteria important to them, which could be 'reclaimed timber', 'biodegradable' or '100% recyclable'.

Tog Knives are a must for serious cooks
Tog Knives
Glenside, Oxleaze Lane, Dundry, Bristol, BS41 8LA
phone: +44 (0)117 276 0273

Tog knives are, according to many top chefs, the best money can buy. They're superbly sharp and durable and they make preparing food a joy. 

Designed by industrial designer Rob Beagley-Brown, a Tog knife is a hand-made, batch-produced artisan product. The blades are forged in Japan's Seki City - home of the Samurai sword - from a unique steel that contains three different metals. A high carbon core gives them their incredible edge. The beautiful handles are made for us in Sheffield using the Norwegian material Kebony maple (a durable and eco-friendly alternative to tropical hardwood); and the knives, which are intended to last for decades, come with a lifetime guarantee (*but don't put them in the dishwasher!).
 
Phil Howard, chef and co-owner of two Michelin-starred The Square restaurant in London's Mayfair says this about his Tog knife: 'I'm not a knife geek but I do love a truly great knife. My Tog is one such piece of crucial kit.'
