Briers launches Pantone range

Glove and boot company Briers is using colour trend house Pantone's shades for a new range.

Featuring three Pantone colours – Bluebell, Parsley Green and Rich Berry – the new Briers collection combines colour with contemporary materials and traditional gardening accessories.

There are hand tools, cushion kneelers, string tins, water cans, herb pots, and metal allotment boxes. Gloves and umbrellas complete the collection.

Briers managing director Jackie Eades said: "This new Pantone range is unlike anything currently in the Briers portfolio – and that is exactly why we introduced it. We wanted to offer something that combines functionality with true contemporary design-led styling. Pantone is a highly recognisable brand, and will no doubt offer retailers a real point of difference, appealing to a wider range of consumers from core gardening to those looking for a unique gift. We have no doubt that this latest range will be a popular seller once it hits stores."
