We believe sustainability starts at design stage, and our pieces are designed with longevity in mind, both in shape and colour. We consider not just aesthetics but practicalities as well, giving thought to how each piece will be used, and above all, the quality that remains after many years of use. We are committed to small production runs ensuring there is no leftover stock.
ESKO pieces are crafted with raw materials sourced directly from the earth, with the majority of minerals sourced locally in Indonesia. The glazes are non-toxic and free of lead and heavy metals. In the production facility itself, the kiln’s are only fired once full. During the day, the production facility utilises a translucent roof tent allowing for natural sunlight, meaning no artificial lighting is used during production.
Whilst ceramic production is by nature heavily intensive, we do as much as possible to reduce waste and recycle wherever possible. Any production waste such as unfired clay trimmings are returned to the laboratory, it is then cleaned, filtered and repurposed into new clay batches. Ceramics seconds and leftovers are offered at a lower price to clients or up-cycled into new and diverse designs. Broken pieces are sent to construction sites as land fillings.
Careful packaging is required to ensure goods arrive in perfect condition. All of our packaging is 100% recyclable and plastic-free. We have opted for recycled cardboard packaging with recycled paper void-fill to protect the ceramics during shipping transit from our manufacturer. In the studio we use Ranpak, a 100% recyclable, paper-based honeycomb packaging to send out your purchases. The boxes for the bathroom set are printed using 100% recycled FSC Certified chlorine-free paper stock.
