Mirrors made in London

The historical premises where manufacturing takes place today, was once a Glass Bottle works in 1700s. Behind Yearns character building is an abundance of history. As you step inside the production facilities today, you are greeted by a colourful, thriving manufacturing hub combining a diverse mix of talented Artisans, engrossed in their job at hand, each skilled person is the heartbeat of the business. Described by many as an Aladdins’s cave, not knowing what you will discover as you weave your way around the production facility. Full of many fascinating processes.

PU Injection Frame Moulding

A fascinating process in which the polyurethane is injected into a closed mould at high pressures. The high pressure forces the polyurethane to completely fill the mould cavity which takes the shape of the mould. Over the years we have built up an impressive array of master moulds all constructed in house. This has enabled us to offer high levels of consistency in production as we are able to mass produce over and over again whilst staying in complete control over the level of finish.

Some of the oldest product lines in PU still remain some of the most successful ranges and have remained timeless throughout the ever-changing trends. With the ability to offer consistency in supply over the years whilst in complete control of the high level of finish as the moulds are hand made in house using one of the best kept secrets.

Frame Making in the Wood Mill

Wooden overmantels, a speciality of Yearn are all hand made using bespoke profiles unique to Yearn. A high proportion of the ranges are constructed from wood using an array of secret manufacturing techniques mastered since the companies inception. The methods used are extremely adaptable which allow Yearn to constantly innovate.

The Wood Mill is a fine example of how traditional techniques combines with the latest technology to create hand finished components. The high level of finish is not solely reliant on machinery, the team of experienced wood machinists give the most important finishing touches that is only made possible by specialist technicians. This is where the journey begins for a Yearn mirror and where quality inspections are at their toughest.

Glass Processing and Gilding

Shape bevelling and straight line bevelling is a vital ingredient and a busy hub within the factory. As you approach the bevelling works form morning to night you can hear the ring of the polishing wheels chamfering the edge of the mirror to precision. Most importantly these processes allow Yearn to stay fully in control of the quality of mirror they are processing whilst keeping a close eye on the bevel.

Yearn have been Gilding since the very early days of Yearn and their gilt silver and gold finishes remain a vital ingredient in the finishing of the products. All of the gilt frames are hand finished in either gold or silver leaf. A highly skilled and delicate operation which involves applying fine metals to the wooden and PU frames. The finishing on the decorative frames are antiqued with a secret patina to complete the look and feel of the products.

Yearns more minimal and contemporary ranges tend to have a more brilliant gold and silver gilt finish in line with the products appearance.
