Descrizione del prodotto
Sophie Conran Galvanized Trug by Burgon & Ball. "The Garden & Great Outdoors Collection" has been designed exclusively by Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball. Working in partnership with Burgon & Ball, Sophie has created a stunning collection of ergonomically advanced tools and gloves, specifically designed with the female hand in mind, and gift sets for lovers of the outdoors. Commenting on her trowel, Sophie said "This beautiful trug is now the permanent store for my favourite garden tools. It keeps everything to hand and in my case lives just by the back door, so I'm ready to grab a spare minute in the garden. Also lovely on the kitchen window-sill filled with pots of herbs or great for carrying cutlery and BBQ essentials." Each trug is handmade and aged to give each piece its own character, and is finished with a waxed Beech wood handle. Please store the trug indoors or in a shed when not in use. The Galvanized Trug measures approx W 21cm x D 13.5cm x L 33.5cm. A message from Sophie... Growing flowers, vegetables and herbs brings nourishment and joy into my life. Gardening and its rich rewards are a fantastic panacea to the hectic pace of life that we all deal with day to day. I grew up with parents who were both enthusiastic gardeners and from an early age have been able to delight in the peace and beauty to be found in the garden. Wherever I have found myself, I have always had the urge to get my hands into some earth and I try to spend as much time as possible outside - crating a garden is a fantastically rewarding pastime. As with most families, my home revolves around the kitchen, which is filled with gorgeous changing blooms from the garden and a rather sporadic supply of fragrant herbs and glorious misshapen vegetables. Not surprisingly, coming from a family of designers, I have been sketching out ideas for products for as long as I can remember. As a gardener I have always dreamed of creating a range of gardening tools and accessories. One of the problems I face as a woman when gardening is that my hands are generally too small for standard tools. My designs specifically address this issue and I hope will add to the joy of gardening with their beauty and improved functionality. I am delighted to be working with Burgon & Ball to produce my tools, because of their exceptional quality and outstanding heritage in garden tool making. I'm immensely proud of these tools, which are a joy to work with. I hope you love them too. The better the tools, the easier the job. Sophie.
