Sustainability, Slow Interiors and Why We Make Bespoke....
70s House Manchester’s roots are firmly planted in buying conscientiously, we are firm believers in slow fashion and slow interiors, buying what you love and cherishing it. When you purchase from us you are not only buying something beautiful for your own home, you are supporting a family business, who, in turn are supporting other UK family businesses with their manufacturing.
We are committed to being socially responsible with our products and the manufactures we use. We achieve this by producing no more than what we need to reduce waste, and manufacturing within the North West or UK to avoid excess transportation costs.
Our fabrics, cushions and wallpaper are all printed digitally, bespoke to your order to avoid any unnecessary wastage. By applying the inks directly to the fabric and paper means less ink is used compared to traditional screen-printing methods.
All of our wallpaper and art prints are FSC certified. This means that the paper and card stock has been sourced from sustainable forests. Our printer inks are supplied by HP (voted one of the most sustainable companies in the world).
Our tea towels are digitally printed in Lancashire in small batches.
Our offcuts of fabric and wallpaper are donated to local schools for arts and craft. Any offcuts of our vinyl produced by Faye Jennifer Vinyl Designs are donated to a local SEN school to help children with special educational needs with art therapy
Whilst working with our customers on a bespoke basis may be more time consuming and items may take a few weeks to arrive with you, but we can assure you, it's worth the wait...
Made in Lancashire.
Supporting local, independent or family businesses and artisan crafts across Lancashire and the UK are key to ethos behind our brand, and it is important to us that everything is actioned in a considered, authentic way, with integrity.
Our products which are made in our home county are honoured with our stamp of authentication.
Inspired by the Northern Soul scene patches of the 60s and 70s, synonymous with venues in the North West such as the Wigan Casino and Twisted Wheel, we have created our own take on this tradition, featuring our brand colours, red Lancashire rose and Manchester worker bee.
