Love Briers

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!

Our newly expanded sales team

Press release

Briers strengthens supply chain with expanded sales team

 

Fashion-led garden clothing and giftware company Briers has further increased investment in its sales management team, with new team members added following on from appointments made throughout the year to strengthen the supply chain.  The expansion of Briers’ workforce comes as the company experiences an increase in demand and expanded worldwide distribution.

 

At the beginning of the season Briers appointed Charlotte Prentice from Suttons as National Sales Manager, with Chris Keightley as International Sales Manager.  In the last twelve months the company also brought in Tahnee Miles as Head of Supply Chain and Collette Pope as Project Manager.

 

Emma Johnson joined as Junior Sales Manager to add further support, and the company has been busy recruiting throughout the season – most recently appointing Elke Beuvink from Kaemingk and Tara Truman from the Coleman Company and formerly Sinclair.

Briers at Chelsea: Celebrity Gluvie Special!

On Briers’ RHS Chelsea Flower Show stand this year, celebrities were throwing their gloved hands in the air and continuing the trend for ‘gluvies’, the social media campaign to raise awareness for Greenfingers charity.

 

Managing Director Jackie Eades and friends welcomed celebrities, the media and consumers to the stand, as #gluvies were shared on Twitter and the gardening lifestyle brand made the most of the crowds brought by the sunny weather and inspirational show gardens.

 

Jackie said: “It was such hard work, hanging out with all the celebs, drinking bubbly, posing for photos..!  But seriously, we were really glad to get some famous faces to help build awareness for Greenfingers, who we continue to support through sales of our All Seasons Gardener gloves.  Also, from a retail perspective, it was also really interesting to see how popular our new designs were – especially the Julie Dodsworth range, with the lightweight seed and weed gloves being visitors’ glove style of choice.”

As the sun shone down, the celebrities came out to play!  The following stars took time out to pose for gluvies with Briers’ Jackie Eades and friend of Briers/Chelsea regular Cassie King: Chris Evans, Jeremy Vine, Matt Baker, Anton du Beke and Brendan Cole from Strictly, Joanna Lumley, Gemma Arterton, Susan George, Sara Cox, Ben Shephard, and Carol Kirkwood.
