Any visitor to the town of Staithes is going to be astounded by how much history such a small place can have. Nestled between the sea and the North York moors, Staithes is famous for its past fishing industry and hundreds of years of mineral production, an industry that continues to this present day.
At the foot of the village is a beautiful small harbour, sheltered by high cliffs, piers and rock armour. A small fleet of brightly painted cobles can usually be found here. These are the traditional fishing vessels of this coast and are used by local fishermen to catch crabs, lobsters and cod.
Staithes has been home to many heroes including Captain James Cook and many brave souls whose names are recorded in stone on the War Memorial. It is also home to those who today, at the sound of the maroon, take the Staithes Lifeboat to sea as their ancestors have done for the last 100 years.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
