A MESSAGE FROM BEN BRISTOW

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to find out more about us.  I hope you are impressed with the products you have seen either in this product guide, or on our stand.

We love what we do, and who we do it for.  Producing product ranges for the heritage and culture sector is always rewarding, especially when we get to work with beautiful masterpieces.  But enjoying the challenge and taking pride in our work isn’t enough, we need to also work tirelessly to improve our impact on the planet.  As a result, our environmental and organic commitments are central to our company strategy, as I’m sure they are for many of you reading this.  We take these commitments seriously and believe that two of the most important elements are transparency and honesty.  We are not perfect and have lots of work to do to make our impact on the world less than it is now, but we are proud of what we have achieved.  So, if you would like to find out more about us and what we are doing to improve our products, practices and behaviour please contact me directly.  I’d also be delighted to hear your thoughts on what you would like to see us do for you, as your textile manufacturer and print partner.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes,

Ben Bristow  (Company Director)   ben@paulbristow.co.uk
