This season sees the launch of two new gardening accessories in the ‘National Trust Made by Burgon & Ball’ licensed range. The new gardening gloves and Kneelo® garden kneeler extend Burgon & Ball’s collaboration with the National Trust, Europe’s largest conservation charity.
The new fabric items feature the latest design for the National Trust collaboration, ‘Under the Canopy’. This print celebrates the beauty and subtle textures found in natural landscapes across the countryside. The nature-inspired designs combine bold colours and delicately layered shapes.
A percentage of revenue from sales of the accessories will also go to the National Trust. Founded in 1895 the National Trust cares for more than 250 parks and gardens, including the largest collection of historic parks and gardens in Europe; many by the most notable designers. It is held in the highest regard by gardeners and those who love visiting beautiful gardens, making it a natural fit for a collaboration with Burgon & Ball, itself with a toolmaking heritage dating back to 1730.
The gloves (RRP £16.99) feature a cushioned palm for comfort and protection, and a gathered wrist gives a snug fit, preventing debris falling into the gloves. These gloves are very tough and hardwearing, yet soft to wear, and are machine washable at 30°C. With a degree of stretch to the fabric, one size fits (almost) all.
The Kneelo® garden kneeler (RRP £20.99) is made with the same construction as Burgon & Ball’s other Kneelo® designs, with a deep layer of firm but light shock-absorbing EVA foam, sandwiched between two luxurious cushioning layers of memory foam for superb comfort. The outer cover is designed in durable neoprene with a quick-dry nylon coating.
These two fabric additions to the ‘National Trust Made by Burgon & Ball’ collection extend the range’s options for gifting, and have been created to work for retailers in both garden centres and softer gift environments.
