Before you get started ?

At Timothy Oulton, we give thought and effort into creating things that last, as well as making responsible, long-term choices that lead to an increase in enduring value – for all of our stakeholders, including our employees, our suppliers and our customers. Anchored by strong roots in antiques, we value the importance of products standing the test of time, using materials that will last generations, reducing waste and developing new ways of doing things that echo these principles.


We design everything in-house, meaning we have full control over the production, craftmanship and recycling processes in our workshops. Our products are handcrafted using simple techniques, lessening our environmental footprint.



While inherently difficult and laborious, the process of salvaging old wood delivers a unique quality of timber that cannot be replicated. Our reclaimed timber furniture features a richly textured surface patina, replete with the scratches, nicks, and marks that are all hallmarks of the passage of time.



In 2018, we launched the Noble Souls collection, the first complete upholstery range using 100% natural, vegetable-dyed linens. The linens are coloured using organic dyes extracted from different plants using ancient extraction techniques that have been passed down through the generations. These dyestuffs are then mixed with water to produce a stunning palette of authentic, natural finishes.


For decades, Timothy Oulton has been renowned for our world-class, hand-finished leathers. We are obsessed with this incredibly beautiful material, and it has always been our ethos to source, manufacturer and handcraft our leathers in the most ethical way possible.


100% of the electricity used in the tannery comes from renewable sources. As our leathers are almost entirely finished by hand, this reduces our use of finishing chemicals by around 40%. The tannery was recently awarded a prestigious gold rating from the Leather Working Group (LWG), achieving the highest possible standard in environmental and social practices. The audit especially focused on social well-being, effluent and wastewater management, and material traceability.



We only use ethically sourced, cruelty-free sheepskin for the Timothy Oulton Collection. The sheepskins originate from Australia and New Zealand, where flocks roam freely and abundantly. The animals supply the much larger meat industry, and the leftover pelts are a by-product ensuring that nothing goes to waste. Animal health and welfare is certified by the independent auditing body AAWCS.


We are committed to continually improving our sustainability practices with a focus on the reduction of packaging, tree planting schemes, the recycling of waste materials, and low impact materials and manufacturing processes. Our team is constantly working on innovative new ways of bringing you beautifully crafted products while protecting our planet and natural resources.
