Health and Safety Assistant

The role

It started with a hammock. Made around a kitchen table, our first-ever product was stitched with careful hands, a trusty sewing machine and a large dose of optimism. 20 odd years on, not much has changed really. The hammock evolved into a select collection of beautiful furniture and accessories for the whole home and garden too, and the few pairs of hands have become hundreds, but the care, the commitment, the love and even that kitchen table very much remains.
