ONLY USE REAL SLATE
All of our slated products are crafted using reclaimed Welsh slate. From its source in North Wales, Welsh slate has been used and crafted by many generations of people from all walks of life since early Roman times. We only use Welsh slate on our slated products!
LOCALLY SOURCED SLATE
We use locally sourced reclaimed Welsh slate on all of our slated products, which is known for its distinct colours and longevity. By using reclaimed slate it allows us to reuse a natural material that has been used for roofing for centuries.
By using reclaimed Welsh slate we are giving slate a new lease of life as well as preventing such a beautiful natural resource going into landfill. The aged slate truly complements our bespoke garden products allowing them to be an attractive centrepiece for your garden.MORE INFORMATION
WHY WELSH SLATE?
Welsh slate is widely regarded as the finest natural slate in the world due to its density, it benefits from a number of highly practical properties that make it an exceptional building material. It is the most durable slate in the world, with a productive life of 100 years. It is waterproof and unaffected by normal extremes of temperature, highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals, and it is colour-fast and non-fading, even in UV light.HISTORY OF WELSH SLATE
To ensure that the slate stays in top condition we would recommend that you apply slate / teak oil onto the slate at least once a year to lock in its quality and shine. Visit our product care guides for more information.MORE INFORMATION
