Evergreen is a creative enterprise based in Scotland. We offer complete in-house services in custom laser cutting and engraving, specialising in branding, signwriting and crafting unique gifts of beauty and quality.
We specialise in woodwork and in sourcing Scottish hardwoods. We have a selection in our workshop - oak, ash, yew, cherry, sycamore, sliver birch - all from local, sustainable sources. We also work with reclaimed or found materials such as driftwood and slate. Ethical, social and environmental values are married with an appreciation of beautiful things.
Evergreen is underpinned by Green thinking and values and is inspired by both local nature and local cultural history. We see ourselves as part of today's global Slow Movement, which has at its heart the philosophyThink Global, Act Local - a phrase first coined by cultural ecologist Patrick Geddes. While the Arts & Crafts movement of the past was reacting to the excesses of Victorian capitalism and industrialism, the Slow Movement of today is a reaction to fast-paced globalisation, increased centralisation and standardisation.
