Lean Manufacturing Produces Unique Result

In a bid to minimise waste sent to landfill Shackletons is going patchwork crazy producing unique patchwork upholstered chairs with its fabric off-cuts.

The brainchild of Financial Director Paul Braithwaite, the company is now using upholstery off-cuts, not just to adhere to its lean manufacturing operations, but also to donate to local charities and raffles.

Their latest patchwork chair was donated as a raffle prize for a Dementia UK fundraiser – the event raised two thousand pounds!

Jason Bloom, National Sales Manager says: “We hate to waste and using the off-cuts in this way is one way to reduce our own landfill figures as well as demonstrating our social responsibility to the local area.”

These unique creations are quickly developing a consumer following and are fast becoming an interior statement for people looking for something a little bit different.
