Sustainability and manufacturing
Brass comprises 65% copper and 35% zinc. It has long been called “poor man’s gold”. A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s brass products are manufactured at Humstorp Metall in Västergötland, largely from recycled brass. At Humstorp, they are constantly working on choosing the most environmentally friendly alternatives when purchasing. Waste is minimised throughout the manufacturing process and any waste metal that nevertheless occurs is sent to recycling. Furthermore, an independent solar power facility provides approximately 40% of the workshop’s electricity consumption.
This is how tea ladles are manufactured
A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter and brass range is produced by Humstorp Metall; these are products that require a meticulous approach and great craftsmanship.
The brass tea ladle is manufactured of brass sheet which is punched out in the correct size. After that, it is polished before being bent and shaped in a number of different stages. The ladle is stamped, polished and quality inspected before being packaged and sent to Svenskt Tenn.
