Briers the specialist gardening gloves and footwear designer, distributer, manufacturer and the licensee behind the GIMA award-winning Gruffalo range of children’s gardening clothes and accessories, will be exhibiting the latest additions to their collections at this year’s Garden & Home Press Event on Thursday 13February 2014 at the Barbican Exhibition Centre. Briers will be present on stand H33.
The Garden & Home Press Event 2014 will showcase Briers latest trends to compliment spring, featuring the new range designed by Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway MBE, formally of Red or Dead, and their award winning HemingwayDesign team. The collection that is exclusive to Briers consists of gardening wellies, gloves and rainmacs.
Briers believe there has long been a gap in the market for design-led ladies gardening gloves, footwear and accessories. As well as providing excellent functionality and durability, quality products can also be colourful, stylish and contemporary.
Jackie Eades, Founder and Managing Director of Briers commented, “The Garden & Home Press Event is always such a delightful event to attend, we at Briers have no hesitation coming back year on year.” Jackie continued to say, “2014 is set to be a big year for Briers and we feel that the Garden Press & Home Event is the perfect setting to showcase some of our exciting new ranges”
The exclusive Garden & Home Press Event features most of the top UK gardening companies who use this event as a platform to promote new products and plants to garden media, journalists, broadcasters and press. The one-day show, which provides the media with a perfect opportunity to handle new products and talk to industry experts, raises funds for Greenfingers, the charity which creates magical gardens for children's hospices.
Standing by the motto “We listen, we care, we learn”, The Garden & Home Press Event has proven to be such a success with visitors and exhibitors that the event has now moved to larger venues as it continues to grow and develop.
Briers believe that its willingness to create bespoke ranges for retailers, quality standards and customer care are major contributory factors in its recent growth.
The current Briers product range comprises of:
Gloves – leather gloves, washable gloves, children’s gloves, ladies’ gloves, all rounder and seedling gloves and workwear gloves
Footwear – garden clogs, ankle boots, adult and children’s wellington boots, high heeled boots, Boppers and Stardust ankle boots
