About Oh So Pretty & Green - Eco Friendly Tablewares
Here at Oh So Pretty & Green, we believe beautiful things shouldn't cost the Earth, literally!
Established in Macclesfield, Cheshire in 2006 as a retail store offering contemporary homewares. Fast forward to today and Oh So Pretty & Green has developed and imports its very own exclusive range of tablewares.
What We Are:
Oh So Pretty & Green brings together beautiful, contemporary design with handmade, eco friendly processes resulting in stunning pieces that don't cost the Earth! We offer three main ranges, our Recycled Aluminium Range and our sustainable Mango Wood Range and a handmade Jesmonite Range.
Our aluminium and wood ranges are:
*Handmade using traditional techniques
*Designed and imported by Oh So Pretty & Green
*Packaged in recycled materials, including inserts
Our Jesmonite range is:
*Handmade in The UK
*Packaged in recycled materials
Our aluminium and wood pieces are designed in house and are created by and imported from a very skilled maker in Northern India. All of the items are handmade and hand finished by a skilled workforce who all work under Fair Trade conditions. Our Aluminium Range is created using handmade, traditional sandcast moulds and the Mango Wood from the sustainable mango wood tree, making each piece unique. Typical markings from these traditional techniques on the aluminium are shown below. These are not defects, but simply the result of the traditional craftsmanship using handmade, sandcast moulds.
We add to our ranges year on year and unlike other companies, we rarely discontinue our ranges and only ever add to the colour collection, meaning you can buy in confidence that you can build your range without disappointment later.
Within these collections you can find an array of unusual and contemporary salad bowls, fruit bowls, salad servers, coasters, condiment sets and more. We aim to bring to you an eye catching range that isn't flooded all over the market. We sell through our website, Etsy and select small retailers only.
What We Are Not:
Oh So Pretty & Green is not a big company turning over mass produced, identical products. We are a small business with niche tableware collections designed with the environment at the centre of our ethos. Each piece is produced by hand and is unique.
Our ranges are made from recycled, sustainable and eco friendly materials and we keep the eco friendly aspects running throughout our business. You will not find our products placed in a plastic tray insert, to be then placed in a plastic coated, glossy box, to be further covered in plastic bubblewrap and other non environmentally friendly packaging.
Our products are wrapped in recycled paper, placed in a recycled cardboard box and a recycled material mail bag. We do not enclose packing slips and invoices as these usually end up in the bin.
Our pieces are not available on Amazon, eBay or other large retailer sites. We believe in the magic of finding that unique item that is the perfect finishing piece that becomes the talking point by guests!
