BBC News visited the Wiltshire-based ReBorn factory this week to report on the innovative manufacturing of the new, sustainable homewares range.
The ReBorn team welcomed Dave Harvey from the BBC to the factory. Dave interviewed ReBorn ceo and founder, Brian Walmsley, and factory manager, Rob Stringer, and filmed the process of creating the items, including everything from the original industrial waste used in ReBorn items, through to finished homewares products.
Brian Walmsley commented: “Of particular interest to the BBC was the story of successful, local manufacturing in the UK – combined with a strong sustainability ethos. Key to that is the principle of circular design – whereby products are designed from their very inception to be repairable and recyclable at end of life, all within a closed loop. The team are all excited to see the report on BBC this week.
“All ReBorn products are now available in John Lewis and at www.reborn.homes – where they’re receiving wonderful reviews and feedback from customers.”
The feature aired on Tuesday evening on the Points West regional news section.
