About Shaker of Malvern
Shaker of Malvern started in 1985 when Alan Eldridge began making contemporary furniture.
The business has grown to a team of ten craftsmen and in 1997 they began making Shaker furniture, including beds, wardrobes, blanket boxes, chests of drawers, dining tables, occasional tables, dressing tables, peg rails etc.Trained craftsmen enjoy making these pieces because they are as challenging as they are rewarding and whilst they appear elegant and simple they must be extremely well made. Each piece of Shaker furniture is made almost entirely of solid wood using maple and cherry and occasionally oak or walnut.
All timber is purchased from an EUTR and FSC certified company, that is committed to sourcing, supplying and promoting timber that has been legally sourced, and wherever possible providing timber that has been sustainably sourced.
Timber purchased from our supplier is all covered under EUTR (European Timber Regulations). And where possible the timber is also FSC certified. (Forest Stewardship Council)
The EUTR was set up in 2013 and it applies to timber harvested in both the EU and the EEA (Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) and will be replicated in the UK following Brexit. It ensures businesses assess and rule out any risks that the timber they provide has come from an illegal sources.
For a forest to be FSC certified they are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship. These inspections are undertaken by independent organisations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC. In order to be given FSC certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner. This is what makes the FSC system unique and ensures that a forest is well-managed from the protection of indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees. Forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC label.A Company becoming FSC certified shows that they comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.
We purchase, Maple, Cherry, Oak and Walnut. Because the maple, cherry and walnut are American this timber does not carry an FSC certificate, however America have their own certified system called the Lacey Act.
The Lacey Act makes it unlawful to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire, or purchase any plant, with some limited exceptions, taken or traded in violation of the laws of the United States, a U.S. State or a foreign country.
