I expect you have heard of River Cottage and Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall? Fabulous food, organic and Fairtrade ingredients, cookery schools and campaigning for ethically produced seasonal food.
During River Cottage Spring (2008) Hugh helped a group of Bristol families start a smallholding on derelict council land. he experience was so inspiring he decided to see if it would work nationwide, and Landshare was created to bring keen growers and landowners together. The movement now includes more than 50,000 people.
Well we were very pleased when they selected our top quality Fairtrade certified organic aprons for their staff. They really are beautifully made and they were sewn and dyed in a special colour just for River Cottage. Our aprons are made in India by a cop-operative and you would be hard pushed to find any other aprons as well made. Their construction is really “old fashioned” in the most beautiful way that we in the west don’t often see. That is probably why they were selected for River Cottage.
