Mantel is bought to you by Dominic and Helen Sharland, also founders of bespoke stationery design house Cutture. All of our products come to life with thanks to a small but perfectly formed team working alongside us, comprising of our senior designer Claire, wonderful local parents who help hand finish certain products and specialist suppliers all based in the UK - we even get our 3 daughters involved, particularly at providing honest critique..
After 10 years of producing bespoke, magical things with paper, we wanted to create products for All, something that makes a difference to people's everyday.
The significance of the name Mantel stems from the notion that a mantelpiece is seen as a place for your most prized possessions, as well as being one of the strongest parts of our homes structurally.
Our products are created to sit with pride on your Mantel for all to see and learn from, importantly, Mantel is also appropriately an anagram of Mental, with mental wellbeing being our most prized possession as human beings and something we should nurture.
All of our products are created to support mindset, to act as tools to help you build a positive mindset which in turn will help your mental wellbeing going forward.
We base all the designs around the 7 areas of life balance, our own ‘pillars of wellbeing’:
Gratitude • Motivation • Knowledge • Kindness • Wellness • Familial • Organisation
From daily intentional prompt cards to motivational wall art and seasonal products, everything is based around these 7 areas.
A note on giving back.
It is our aim to become a company for good, we will be regularly donating proceeds of sales of some our products to mental health charities. We handed our first donation over to Mind in January 2021 following our promise to donate 5% of sales of our Postivity Advent Calendar in aid of Mind.
All of our products are sustainability sourced and created, from the paper we choose to the suppliers we use. With our 15 year history in stationery design we work with the most sustainable *FSC certified paper manufactures and printers who work ethically and sustainably in their own processes.
We have recently transferred our Art prints to be produced via a print on demand processes for the reason that we are now reducing carbon emissions, with less transportation per order and in avoidance of excess production, meaning that prints are only created on ordering.
*FSC certified paper
Products are printed on FSC certified paper. FSC is a sustainable forest management certification that assures traceability and responsible sourcing of the paper.
We are really looking forward to getting to know you, our customer, and building a community together which focusses on positive mental wellbeing and doing our bit for the planet too.
See you soon!
Dominic and Helen
