I love flowers. Their colour and texture can have a significant impact on any room or space, bringing it to life.
Years ago, working full time and looking after a large family I found that I didn't always have the time to regularly replace fresh flowers, when they reached a stage that they were passed their best.
I therefore decided to try faux flowers.
Unable to find realistic, quality faux flowers for my home on the high street, I sourced quality UK suppliers.
I decided to turn my passion into a specialist business.
The only thing missing was the wonderful scent that flowers have. I decided to over come this by hand blending reed diffusers, sitting them close to the flowers. Hence the reed diffusers became part of the business, followed by 100% soy candles.
Working towards Recycling, Sustainability, Biodegradable, & Quality.
Thistle & Twine is a very small independent business, working as a sole trader. I buy directly from UK suppliers, & actively seeks to support other small business, especially those in my local community.
All candle & reed diffusers are vegan friendly & animal cruelty free.
I produce only small batches from my farmhouse workshop on the edge of the North Yorkshire Dales.
Each candle is individually hand poured using 100% soy wax , which is sustainable & biodegradable, making it not only cleaner for your health but also the environment.
Only Fragrance oils and wicks are added.
Each reed diffuser is hand blended using the same ethos.
Labelling & packaging is kept to a minimum, so as to enable recycling of products. I make & handwrite the labels.
Every part of the process involves using/ &/or supplying recycled paper, card, glass or plastic .
I pledge to minimise any environmental impact of the business, as best I can.
I will only make up Floral orders on request, so as to limit any waste.
I will not hold any stock supplies.
My Instagram page , thistleandtwine_est2017 shows only bespoke orders , photographed prior to shipping.
All flower packaging is also recycled or reused.
I have removed the gift shop page for pre made floral arrangements, from this website, so as to reduce any possible stock wastage.
The only items that can now be purchased through the website directly are the candles & reed diffuser & gifts.
I am passionate about the products and value your custom.
Thank you for your support
