The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced the online retail launch of the RHS Welsh Slate Collection, a range of garden features and furniture made from handcrafted pieces of natural stone in partnership with design company Welsh Slate Water Features.
Welsh Slate Water Features stone water features and decorative rocks for garden designs and landscaping projects across the U.K. This is the first licensing partnership that Welsh Slate has forged with any brand.
The RHS Welsh Slate Collection brings slate to water features, window stones, stepping-stones and slate benches as well as Japanese or Zen-themed designs. Every RHS Collection product is crafted from real Welsh slate.
“For our first-ever licensing agreement we wanted to work with a property that understood the importance of gardens, gardening and home-grown craft skills,” says Ioan Raymond, owner, Welsh Slate Water Features. “We are therefore delighted that the RHS, the U.K.’s favorite gardening charity and a strong supporter of British craft excellence, has lent its name to what we feel is a truly inspiring partnership.”
The range, which launched in July, can be viewed and purchased online. Visitors to RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey will be able to see a showcase collection in the retail space.
Welsh Slate Water Features works in partnership with many garden designers and landscapers to create outdoor spaces. Its manufacturing and sourcing are entirely British.
“The real beauty of Welsh Slate is its natural ability to enhance both traditional and contemporary settings – and nowhere is this more apparent than in this collection,” says Cathy Snow, licensing manager, Royal Horticultural Society. “The unique products in the RHS Welsh Slate Collection will truly enhance any garden at a time when gardens are more important to us than ever.”
