Sustainability and Charity
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important to me, and the protection and preservation of our planet are paramount in all product design, so it is vital to stay ahead of the curve, adapting to the times and ensuring we do our part. In every design project I undertake, environmental and social sustainability come first on the agenda. All Matthew Williamson products are created, packaged, and sold with environmental sustainability in mind. The innovative use of materials to minimise waste, the funding and support for craftsmanship and the consideration of eco-friendly approaches to packaging and shipping are key to the success and longevity of homeware in the modern-day. We strive to ensure that sustainable standards are met during the process, creating unique investment pieces that last a lifetime.
Matthew Williamson is proud to support charity initiatives that help vulnerable people and, presently, support members of the global community doing their part to guide us through these challenging times
