A beloved metal with distinctive properties, brass is often used for decorative purposes around the home due to its luxurious appearance and close resemblance to gold.
It’s an alloy of copper and zinc that can be applied in varying proportions depending on the desired properties. The two elements are melted down and combined together in an electric furnace using a process known as cementation before being moulded into shape.
Aside from being non-rusting, hardwearing and versatile, brass is also a highly sustainable metal that can be recycled many times over without diminishing the quality. This is why we use it for a handful of our products including reusable water bottles, pens and homeware.
