Abbey Horn Clothes Brushes

With their roots in horn shaping dating back to 1749, Abbey Horn of Kendal have a rich pedigree in the art of crafting horn and as such, they were the perfect choice for me when choosing a clothes brush.

The brush itself is of high quality and the bristles of soft-medium stiffness, enabling it to be used on fine wools/cashmere and cotton. The brush is then backed in beautiful polished Ox horn, which I chose to have engraved courtesy of Abbey Horn. The horn is sourced naturally, meaning the pattern is completely unique and no two brush will ever be the same. You also have the choice of light, medium or dark colour preferences, catering for personal tastes. I opted for the dark, which is illustrated in the pictures below.

If  you are wanting to take good care of your clothes and you are looking for a good quality personalised brush then look no further.

Roberts Radio

In 1932 Harry Roberts, founded the Roberts Radio Company in partnership with Leslie Bidmead, and they quickly established an excellent reputation for their high-quality portables. Financed entirely from earnings, the Company's growth has been steady rather than spectacular.

This delightful model from Roberts, built in wood and then lined, has kept its classic look since inception in the 1950's and still looks utterly fantastic. Keeping up to date with technology it now includes a 120 hour battery life as well as a mains power alternative, DAB rotary wavelength tuning, RDS station name display, a stereo line in socket for your iPod, headphone socket and decent portability thanks to its carry handle.

As it's also available in a variety of different colours, it's sure to brighten up any room. My choice would be the British Racing Green option, although Piano Black is rather dashing.
