Environmental concerns drive everything we do at Tane. Every decision we make, has due care and attention given to it, whether in our design thinking, choice of materials, to product after-life considerations.
Sourcing suppliers with a similar company ethos and genuine sustainable products can be very time consuming but also very rewarding. Our ‘Groove’ floor lamp is a great example, with material for the shade hand-printed on organic hemp fabrics in Melbourne. The bamboo frames are sourced from a Victorian importer of the material from a managed forest in China. CNC cut locally and assembled in the Tane factory, they are a great example of local design/manufacture and collaboration.
We openly admit that we are not perfect, there are still many elements of our business that can be improved on to make them more-earth friendly. But the fact is we have a strong desire to change and make change.
