Why Buy British?

In recent years, increased awareness of climate change, a growing world population, political instability and the financial crisis – not to mention the ethical issues often associated with working conditions abroad – have forced consumers to think more carefully about where their produce comes from.

British brands are right back on trend, providing reassuring familiarity, and style.  We are proud of our Britishness and feel it is an essential part of our identity.

Not only are we Made in Britain, but all our garden swing seats, bespoke garden benches, rope swings for trees & bespoke pergolas are all made within a ten miles radius of the Sitting Spiritually office and show garden at Lyme Regis in Dorset.

Sustainability issues have become symptomatic of a shallower age with consumers increasingly discriminating about which brands they will buy. Today, the "Made in Britain" tag is a powerful branding message for the trend-conscious, more ethically and environmentally aware shopper.

Pierre Brahm, founder of Brahm Interiors  says: Buying or commissioning a piece of furniture or a decorative object in Britain is supporting the British economy, but, more importantly, it's supporting the network of artisans in Great Britain who, without funding, would cease to exist.

Buying British certainly supports our own economy, encourages home-grown talent, helps the environmental effort and celebrates our own unique skills. As developing economies begin to catch us up, we'd do well to value British made goods before it's too late. We owe it to our own industrial heritage, resources and wealth of talent.

So when you are commissioning Sitting Spiritually of Lyme Regis, we hope you feel you are making a difference and that your wooden swing seat, pergola swing, tree swing, garden bench will bring you years of pleasure and comfort knowing you have bought British
