theformary : transforming waste through good design
change me

We love textiles… so much so that we were invited to share our fondness and expertise in an article on Sustainable Textiles for “Melting Point” by Dr Eric Dorfman. Published by Penguin 2008. The research for this book caused us to re-evaluate how we were working…

We decided to do it another way…

Moving from designing and producing home wares and furniture to using our specialised knowledge and decades of expertise to meet the demand for workable solutions for the vast amounts of commercial waste generated each year.

Our team of designers, from textile to industrial, in collaboration with our materials engineer now work with industries world wide, providing assistance through de-production processes and extending the useable life of waste products through clever and thoughtful redesign.
