Briers is a family firm started by a husband and wife team - Jackie and Nigel Eades. Jackie is very much the face of Briers whilst Nigel keeps everything working behind the scenes.
Jackie started it all with garden gloves... Because what she didn’t see were attractive designs aimed at women. In her own words all the gloves were rather “blokeish” whilst in the garden market the majority of the buyers are women. Where were the women’s gloves? Where indeed...
Her retail background told her this was an opportunity and also that she needed to establish her point of difference... Fast forward to today and you have gorgeous collections sold across the country - all born out of her vision over 15 years ago. We hope you love them as much as we do!
Briers were proud to support the 2016 GIMA Awards with a photo booth to raise funds in aid of Greenfingers.
Jackie Eades presented Jon Ashley, Greenfingers Chairman and Greenfingers Head of Fundraising, Linda Petrons with a giant cheque for over £10,000, ably assisted by Chris Ramsden, GIMA President.
"Over the moon to be a winner at these awards! What more can I say but a huge thank you to all the team!" Jackie Eades.
