  • Community

    We are members of a number of local groups which push and promote independents and local stores. 

  • Environment

    We have partnered with Trees for Life, an award winning conservation charity working to restore the Caledonian Forest in the Highlands of Scotland tree by tree, including all its animal species. For every 10 CARVD products sold, we will plant 1 tree to aid the restoration of the beautiful Caledonian Forest and offset our wood usage. We use 100% FSC certified veneers in all our products. This means that our customers  can be assured that our wood comes from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. 

  • Social

    We currently work with local college students and set them briefs to give experience of working with real requirements i.e size, material etc. and get feedback on their designs.  We work with certain startup and social enterprise to produce items for them at cost price. This goes back to our belief that there is value in helping others.  We are in the process of creating designs for Fin Free to raise awareness of shark culling for shark fin soup.  We are working with a graphic designer and teacher to replace plastic signs in schools with wooden signs. 

  • Employees Culture

    Every designer on our site gets a profile on our website and the opportunity to network with other designers. They also get 10% from the sales of any product.
