Under the alias Priormade, Beck Prior creates contemporary homewares, lighting and accessories using a range of sustainable, low impact and recycled materials. Attention to detail, skilled craftsmanship and responsible fabrication are at the forefront of every design.
All products are individually handmade on site in her Bristol shop – Prior Shop. Only a set amount are available each year. All off cuts are used to create key rings, magnets, jewellery or donated to local youth projects. Packaging is recycled, reused and recyclable. Priormade uses UK independent suppliers (where possible) for necessary components that they cannot make in-house.
Birch plywood (from well managed forests) is seen as a sustainable resource as it grows in abundance and the production uses all available material from the tree. Founder Beck Prior sources her plywood from a local company who are committed to improving forest management practice and responsible trading. They supply European birch ply and guarantee a Chain of Custody (CoC) for all their timber products. Other wooden pieces use off-cuts from carpenters or wood salvaged from local recycling centres. The metal inserts for the vessels are made from recycled stainless steel and the lighting components from an independent UK supplier. All products are finished with organic cold pressed linseed oil.
