Polite Furniture

The Sustainable

What would it mean for the world if we were to become more aware of the ambivalence we encounter in our interactions with one another? What might sustainable relationships involve? Polite Furniture engages with the complexities and contradictions that expose us to our ordinary human frailty in day to day life.
Emotional Sustainability means choosing with care the parts you are prepared to play in the dramas of others - friends, family, governments, and nations. Acknowledge your limitations whenever you have the opportunity. The most creative place you can be and probably the hardest work you will ever do, is to remain in the audience.

Environmentally friendly processes and materials have been used in the things we make.  Hand printed clothing designs are sealed with a heat press to ensure colour fastness. Please use short wash cycles to keep your purchase environmentally sustainable. Polite Furniture garments are either certified 100% Organic Cotton grown and manufactured in Tanzania, Africa or 100% Organic Carbon Neutral Cotton grown and manufactured in India.
