All our products are made by hand in the Scottish Borders.
We treat them with only natural oils and waxes.
The only aftercare required is a little natural oil rubbed onto the surface.
Please do not wash in dishwasher and if possible store on their side to avoid squashed surface protecting feet.
Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clayor volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism. It is the finest grained foliated metamorphic rock. Foliation may not correspond to the original sedimentary layering, but instead is in planes perpendicular to the direction of metamorphic compression.
