We’re not a big faceless company we’re a wee brand setup by people passionate about doing things better and often in a different way.
Trent and Tom set up Blue Marmalade because they believe good design can help us all live a more enjoyable, less wasteful life. How? By creating eco-friendly products that are as interesting, witty, challenging and full of life as our customers. Products that people not only want to buy, but that we know they’ll want to keep for a long time. And by doing it all in a way that keeps our own footprint as light as possible – local production, sustainable materials, all production cast-offs re-used and products flat-packed for transport, yet straightforward to put together.
So, back in 2002, why did two furniture designers take such a big risk to go it alone? Because we believe every home needs to be filled with products that people love and we wanted to create those products. Important to us is not just the product itself but the process that brings it into existence. It is this, often unseen and neglected, side that we wanted to do differently and do better. The established ways that bring us the products we buy are perhaps not always the best and we think that just because everyone else does things one way is no reason to follow suit. That is why we set about designing products that are less harmful to produce and built a manufacturing loop that is as clean, eco and efficient as we can make it. Because there’s a better way to do things, so lets get it right, right from the start!
Here’s to a lighter, brighter world for us all.
