We run Make It Custom Design from a small studio nestled on the edge of the South Downs in Sussex.
Sustainability is really important to us which is why we use bamboo as our wood as it is super-fast growing and absorbs more carbon than other woods.
The acrylic inners of our decorations made from recycled plastic, and we use water based varnish on our products to bring out the beautiful grain of the bamboo.
We use paper in our packaging and are always revising things to keep things as sustainable as we can.
This is a charity that's very close to us as we've previously been a volunteer dog walker for them and we've seen first hand the positive impact of their work. It is know that having a dog can bring huge health benefits - even just stroking a dog can release endorphins - and we are proud that we are able to support others maintain this special relationship.
This is our family business and we love what we do, but the best thing? When we've created something truly special for someone.
We always say 'every purchase tells a story' and it's true.
From a girl buying a gift for her first boyfriend, to someone buying something to remember their dear doggy who passed away over 10 years ago. We treat each product with equal care.
