The Red Grouse is a medium-sized bird, the male is larger than the female. It has a plump body, a short tail and a lightly hook-tipped bill. It is reddish brown, with it’s legs and feet mostly covered in pale feathers. Consequently the Birds breed in the UK in the uplands of the north and west and are resident all year around. As a result travelling very little in their lives. Therefore the population has been decreasing in recent years mainly due to the loss of heather moorland. And also the spread of diseases. For instance they generally forage on Heather, seeds, berries, and insects.
has been selling Archipelago Wooden Birds, Fish and associated Sculptures for 16 years when Nick first opened the doors of Avant Garden on March 17th 2000. Nick has always been very keen on wildlife in general and so to see the range at Archipelago, was a must for him to sell them in the shop.
Archipelago has a very strong ethic which has helped to make the brand very strong. The product portfolio has changed over the years to accommodate new exciting Sculptures, but with the quality of each item being so high and the care and attention given by the Sculptors being so incredibly accurate, they go from strength to strength.
has always been a strong supporter of Fair Trading and has built up and kept very good long term lasting relationships with all of the Carvers and Sculptors and the standards of the Fair Trade Policy is always monitored. From when the first sketches are drawn up, photos of real birds and fish etc. are taken, to the creation and then to the final product the design team at Archipelago work directly with the skilled Carvers and Sculptors to bring you a piece of art that is unrivalled in the market place.
Because these Birds & Fish are Fair Traded it also means that the numbers are always limited. Therefore you will never see Archipelago Sculptures mass produced and in the big stores. Thus keeping them an exclusive and beautiful Collection.
Archipelago has now grown to be a Design Label, recognized now for both interiors and exteriors with the addition of the new Metal Birds.
All of the carved sculptures carry Fair Trading and story labels. As well as the branding logo giving customers the assurance they are buying a genuine Archipelago product.
