Contour boxes are made with locally grown British hardwoods, supplied by English woodlands Timber Ltd and Associated Timber Ltd. Careful timber selection ensures minal waste and all offcuts and sawdust are used as fuel for heating.
The place markers set into the Box tops are recycled solid silver (ecosilver from Cookson)
All Contour boxes are finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil
"The foundation of Osmo wood finishes has been based upon purified and refined natural resources through the last 40 years. The dry finish fulfils both the DIN EN 71.3 (suitable for children's toys) and DIN 53160 (fast to perspiration and saliva) and as such is safe for humans, animals and plants. Osmo uses carefully harvested natural oils (sunflower, soya, linseed and thistle oils) and hard waxes (carnauba and candelilla waxes) for it's finishes."
