For where we needed our colour to be spot on, we went for Durat; a post-industrial waste composite. Made to order for us in Finland, it uses industrial composite by-products that would otherwise go to waste and can create almost any shade of any colour you’d like.
For the main boards and the rack we settled on another recycled material, but this time made by Smile Plastics in Wales. Each one of their pieces are unique, and their random, matte appearance contrasts brilliantly with the Durat.
For the liners of the cutting boards, there was only one candidate – possibly our favourite functional material of all time – Richlite. Food-safe, beautifully workable and utterly dependable it’s a Sawmill stalwart.
