Here at Eldvarm we take great care to ensure that our materials are as natural as possible, with minimum impact on the environment. We have also taken into consideration how the environment will impact them. They are tools meant to be used around the fire and, over time, their stories will show. Embrace the change as they show signs of usage - as the products take on a natural sheen and begin to mold into the hands that hold them.
Our products are made with untreated French Beech that come from sustainably managed forests in France. We love the natural beauty of the wood and how it ages naturally with use, producing a beautiful patina over time.
(Main Body Parts)
Our steel is powder coated with paint from the company AkzoNobel, who’s history started with Bofors forge in Sweden in 1646. The coating we use is free of harmful substances for minimum environmental impact.
All metal screws and small details are made of brass, both for the elegance they add to the products, and as a nod to traditional brass fireplace accessories, which were often made of solid brass.
All the leather is from the Swedish tannery Tärnsjö, established in 1873 and considered to be one of Europe’s finest producers of vegetable tanned leather. The leather we use for our products is greased for better protection, but it will darken over time and obtain that much wanted patina of used leather.
The bristles on our brushes are of horse hair, the traditional material for fireplace accessories. A naturally greasy material, it resists high temperatures and lasts well over time. The brushes are produced on traditional machines at the Brosserie Julio, a family business that has been making brushes in Nantes, France, since 1947.
