Some of the things we love...
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!
Six members of Briers – Jackie Eades, Sharmini Martin, Tristan Sissons, Mandy James, Matt Jackson and Charlotte Prentice - are participating in the annual Greenfingers Charity Garden Re-Leaf Day 20 (and 10) mile Walk in and around Cambridge on 17th March 2017.
Christmas might feel like a distant memory already, but for one Leicestershire boy his Christmas wish is set to continue long into the new year thanks to Briers.
