Our Supply Chain and Sustainability Standards
When we started Blästa Henriët back in 2017 we made a pledge to manufacture in the UK. For us it important to support local trade and British craftsmanship, and are proud to say we continue to do so. This also means we can easily oversee production methods whilst minimising our carbon footprint.
We maintain a close relationship with our suppliers and stay informed on how they work, who they work with and how our products are made at all times.
Our partnering factory in Wiltshire supply the materials for the inner wheat bag and eye pillow. They use an unbleached and untreated cotton calico and local Cotswold wheat.
Our European flax linen and Organic Merino Wool is sourced directly from the mill in Europe. All fabrics are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
We currently work with a total of five core manufacturers, all based in the UK.
- A textile manufacturer based in Wiltshire. This family owned small factory makes our Wheat Bags, Eye Pillows, Wash Bags, Towels and Eye Masks.
- A print workshop in Staffordshire. They print on our unbleached linen by the metre using traditional rotary print methods and UK made MagnaColours® ECO ink.
- A label maker based in Devon. They print our cotton labels with instructions on how to use and care for our products.
- A packaging manufacturer in Essex. They cut and print our product packaging using recycled materials. All packaging is FSC certified and 100% recyclable.
Packaging and Shipping
We assemble and quality check each product before it leaves our warehouse.
Our deliveries are plastic free and we use recycled materials where possible. We use the services of Royal Mail who have reduced their carbon emission by 29% since 2005 and DPD who make every parcel they deliver carbon neutral.
We are constantly looking for new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and improve the sustainability of both our products and processes. Feedback from partners and customers is very important for us as we aim for ever higher standards.
