Borough is made from oak – a strong timber that we’ve chosen for its interesting grain (characterful, but not as knotty as some). It’s naturally food-safe too.
The oak is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there. Like oak, it’s also safe to prepare food on. IsoGuard® comes in a few finishes; ‘Seasoned’ gives Borough a subtle, silvered colour – like naturally weathered timber.
Size and shape
Borough comes in two sizes: a long, thin board, and this wider rectangular one. Because it gives you a more practical space, this is the better of the two if you want to use it for chopping. But, it still works for larger serving dishes too.
There’s a small loop on Borough’s handle in case you want to hang it up, which is made from a natural, brown twine because it goes with the organic feel of the timber. The only other detail is a subtle letter ‘N’ – the Neptune mark – that’s lasered into one side of the board near the bottom.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Warm water is the best way to clean Borough. Just don’t soak it, put it in a dishwasher, or leave liquids on its surface for a long time because they could damage the wood. And, as good as IsoGuard® is, staining on the board can still happen: a sign that it’s well-used and much-loved.
