Bradleys at Journées des Plantes - Domaine de Chantilly

We were extremely happy to be invited to exhibit at our first ever French Garden show, Journées des Plantes - in  Domaine de Chantilly. A longstanding garden event that has been running now for over 30 years, it brings together 200 of the best horticultural and garden lifestyle exhibitors.      We don't think we have ever exhibited in a place so beautiful. Blessed with the most glorious mid October sunshine, it felt more like a weekend in August. The backdrop to the show is the stunning Château de Chantilly. The original building was destroyed in the French Revolution and rebuilt during 1875.  A majestic building surrounded by the lake and ornamental gardens, it really was a sight to behold.      The reception...

Great Quality Gloves - Make Light Work

The humble gardening glove was one of the first products we made way back when we started the Tannery here in Shropshire. And as such they have become one of our best selling and most recognisable products.  Available in a range of colours and styles, there's a pair perfect for any gardener's personality.  Over the years we've made our gloves for many top brands and retailers, selling all over the world. Perhaps our most famous fan is Princess Alexandra, who kindly sent us a letter thanking us for the pink gloves we gave her back in 2004.    They've even been seen strutting their stuff on the catwalk in Florence.    And have been highly reviewed and recommended by many publications including our  Real...

The rise of the industrial leather apron

  At Bradleys our handmade leather aprons have always been popular attire for the keen gardener and provide much needed robust protection for a variety of tasks.  Over the last year we have seen a rise in popularity of this once purely functional piece of industrial style kit. We've seen barbers sporting our own denim styles and baristas brewing independently roasted coffee in leather aprons. We've watched as waiters bring over our food in industrial style restaurants and shop assistants wearing them as uniform. The style is functional, practical and looks great as a fashionable piece of workwear.  We've even had our clients The Nunhead Gardener feature in a Monocle Magazine film about their Southeast London garden centre. The staff all look great in their aprons.    We're...
