An Aabelard apron is made from quality material. We use waxed cotton – fabric developed over years to suit the toughest rigors of outdoor life – combined with double-faced soft Italian leather.
Heavyweight antiqued brass buckles and fixings make the Aabelard apron as durable as it is beautiful. They are also generously proportioned with no skimping on fabric – because there’s nothing worse than an apron that doesn’t go all the way! Whether you’re a home cook, hobbyist, gardener, professional or just plain messy, the Aabelard apron is for you.
We think an Aabelard apron makes the perfect gift for men and women, especially for those who are hard to buy for! Whoever you’re buying for, an Aabelard apron makes a thoughtful and long-lasting present. We can make your gift even more special by customising it for you. The luxury leather styling makes for a beautiful 3rd wedding anniversary gift too.

Alex Pole Ironwork was established in 2006 to provide high quality, contemporary and functional metalwork for the home and garden.
Alex has had a lifelong passion for metalwork of all types and started his training as a jewellery maker in 1990, he followed this with blacksmithing in 1994, and has worked professionally in both fields ever since.
Both modern and traditional techniques are used at the forge in South Somerset where all work is produced by hand and, wherever possible, using materials sourced from the local area.
As well as developing new products for the range Alex spends a great deal of time designing and making bespoke commissions for private clients, project managers and furniture designers. He also runs regular courses in blacksmithing.
One of his primary aims is to promote British blacksmithing and to make it accessible, and affordable, to the general public.
Alex is fully committed to running a sustainable UK business and will reuse, recycle, and salvage when and where he can.

Welcome to Betsy Benn – A design for every story. We specialise in personalised prints, typographic and unique gifts, creatively clever greetings cards, heavenly home-wares and present perfection. Lovingly designed and created by Betsy Benn at her Cheltenham Spa studio in the Cotswolds since 2009.
Betsy Benn as a company has grown from being just Betsy and occasionally her family and friends, to employing another three full time Betsy’s, as well as five (or is it 6) other virtual Betsy’s who become full time Betsy’s at busy periods. Not to mention the many local suppliers and trades who help out and benefit from a successful growing local business.
Ben has always been fascinated by making, building and dismantling things; every now and again he’d find himself watching random videos of people doing the same. After watching a video of a young lad making a knife in his dad’s garage, he found his next project.
With limited tools and knowledge Ben set about making his first knife in his cellar at home. His first knife was made, followed by many others until he was surrounded by his new addiction. It wasn’t long before an order book formed and Blok Knives featured in the Derbyshire Times.
In 2013, Ben found a shared creative space a few miles from his home. He set up shop and spent many a late night trying to perfect his craft. It was at this point Ben went part time and started to dedicate more hours to making his kitchen knives.

Since the company’s foundation over 30 years ago, the Chalon brand’s reputation has grown and now receives global recognition. Through its own showrooms, the company has a presence in each of the key regions of the UK and has a number of agents representing Chalon overseas. The company is looking to expand its international focus and is working with UKTI as part of a co-ordinated export drive.
Whilst concentrating on kitchens, the Chalon range has been extended from its origins in freestanding furniture to include dining rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, studies, and libraries – every room of the home. In more recent years, kitchen trends have seen Chalon develop furniture for utility rooms and pantries, as well as integrating the modern appliances that are required for today’s living. Complementary products such as lighting were added to the portfolio in 2010.
Today, under new ownership, our craftsmen continue to develop and evolve the Chalon portfolio. Predominantly English in style, our designs have been flavoured by particular influences from France, Scandinavia and Ireland to develop a distinctive house style.
Charlotte has been hand making beautiful yet practical,
embroidered and printed items for the home since 2010; with a background in embroidery and a degree in Textile Design, she quickly discovered her own unique style of
illustrative embroidery and has been hand making a unique range of homeware items for the past five years from a small studio nestled in a corner of the Cotswolds
countryside. A few years ago, when her one pair of hands was no longer enough, she enlisted the help of a small team to help with production and day-to-day tasks working from her studio.
Her British-made homeware collection ranges from linen cushions, embroidered linen tea towels and kitchen accessories, to co-ordinating
stationery and beautiful screen printed crockery.
