The Royal Horticultural Society has announced that U.K. shoemaker Hotter has launched a limited-edition range of new RHS Molly canvas shoes for women. RHS has also licensed Biscuiteers to produce the RHS & Biscuiteers collection.
The Hotter x RHS shoes are available in two designs – RHS Rose Floral and RHS Blue Floral. The RHS brand will be highlighted on the packaging and swing tags for both pairs of shoes. The shoes use illustrations from the RHS Lindley Collections. A total of 1,400 pairs of the shoes have been manufactured at Hotter’s Skelmersdale factory. They are now available through the Hotter website and 23 stores and garden centers and will also be sold in the U.S. and internationally via hotter.com. This is the second major RHS footwear launch by Hotter.
“Our design team created these practical, comfortable, modern and stylish designs in collaboration with the RHS just in time for the start of national easing of lockdown,” says Clair Pearl, chief product officer, Hotter. “Like many other organizations and visitor attractions across the country, the RHS has been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and at Hotter we wanted to play our part in raising awareness of this fantastic horticultural charity.”
The RHS x Biscuiteers collection is now on sale online at biscuiteers.com, and Biscuiteers’ Boutique shops in Battersea & Notting Hill and will soon be available at retailers including the RHS Garden Wisley Garden Center.
The collection includes two biscuit tins, a letterbox gift box and two Jolly Gingers (gingerbread men) all containing Biscuiteers’ hand-iced biscuits.
“The RHS & Biscuiteers collection of British craft-company-produced biscuits is a wonderful addition to our licensing program: a tribute to British gardens that is colorful, beautifully packaged and superbly designed – not to mention delicious,” says Cathy Snow, licensing manager, The Royal Horticultural Society. “And what could be better than enjoying sitting in your garden on a sunny day with some RHS & Biscuiteers biscuits and a nice cup of tea – or your favorite tipple?”
Both collections are available now.
