Made in Britain CEO in conversation with Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co.

Made in Britain’s CEO John Pearce joins Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. Marketing Manager (and son of Founder Amanda Oldfield) Harry on the latest episode of their podcast Two in a Bed

Not-for-profit Made in Britain brings together the British manufacturing community to promote authentic British-made products to businesses and consumers. Since 2015, CEO John Pearce has helped the Made in Britain trademark become more widely recognised. Today, it’s a sign of high standards that evokes trust, whether businesses are selling within the British Isles or abroad. There is a demand for British goods: trademark recognition has reached 80%. 3 in 5 businesses prefer to buy British goods instead of importing. Championing British-made not only aids the economy, but it’s a positive environmental step too.

Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. are proud holders of the Made in Britain accreditation. Based in Wolferton on Norfolk’s Sandringham Estate, the family-run company has over 20 years' experience creating handcrafted products from the finest British materials. A love of craftsmanship, local materials, and sustainable practice is at the core of the business.

Their collection of heritage-inspired metal beds is sculpted using 100% British iron. Meanwhile, their recently updated Sandringham Wool Collection reduces wool waste by utilising hyperlocal fleece from the Estate’s flock for indulgent mattresses and breathable bedding. Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. preserve time-honoured techniques to produce high quality, long-lasting, and durable pieces.

This podcast episode is the second time John Pearce has collaborated with Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. Last year, to celebrate 20 years of bed-making, John interviewed Amanda on YouTube to discover the origins of the company. Not only this, he learnt about their commitment to environmentally friendly practices, exceeding expectations as a Carbon Neutral Royal Warrant Holder. 

The Two in a Bed podcast delves in the behind the scenes of Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. Harry and Amanda explore themes from sustainable living to British wool and manufacturing with insights from industry guests. 

Authenticity and transparency are the core of the brand’s identity. Much like Made in Britain, Amanda and Harry hope to educate, invite conversation and create a community with Two in a Bed. 

“As members of Made in Britain, we’re passionate about promoting high quality homegrown materials and crafting them locally”, says Harry. “Authenticity is super important to us. Our beds and mattresses are created here in the UK, not just assembled. Nothing is imported.”

This podcast episode sees Harry interview John Pearce to discover how the Made in Britain community supports its members.

What should consumers look for in authentic British products? What sustainable choices are Made in Britain making to combat climate change? What’s the future of the Made in Britain community?

John reveals all about their new green initiative: the Green Growth Programme. It provides practical tools and resources for members to progress faster sustainably and meet Net Zero goals. It aims to stimulate conversation and build connections, something Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. have already taken advantage of (having collaborated with fellow members Baavet and Soho Lighting). 

Made in Britain is bringing sustainability to the forefront. Who better to discuss it with than Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co.? They’re pioneers of ethical production: certified Carbon Neutral, energy efficient, advocates of reusing and recycling.

Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. showcases the importance of sustainable production to create handcrafted British-made products that will last a lifetime. 

Episode 8 of Two in a Bed is now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Samsung Podcasts, and Amazon Music. Discover the podcast via Podbean or Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co.’s Instagram bio.
