The contemporary country brand herdy has opened a new lifestyle shop in Hawes, North Yorkshire following a successful launch into the picturesque North Yorkshire location last year, the herdy in Hawes shop has moved to larger premises on the high street.
Providing the perfect space to showcase the herdy range to full effect the shop adds a splash of contemporary herdy colour and humor creating a destination boutique to appeal to tourists and locals alike. The Hawes shop is the third in the herdy fold and the first to open outside the Lake District – the first shop opened in Grasmere with a second in Keswick. The move to Hawes was a natural one as the area offers much the same as the Lake District in terms of visitors – rugged scenery and of course - sheep!
Herdy shop sign herdy brings a touch of contemporary design to the country and offers a fresh alternative to traditional gifts and collectibles. With bright pop art colours, simple distinctive graphics and of course the familiar friendly face of the brand's namesake the Herdwick sheep, herdy brings a refreshing new look to homewares, kitchenware, stationery and gifts.
Herdy's products are designed to appeal to the design savvy looking for alternative to traditional giftware for tourists visiting the area looking for a reminder of their time there, those looking for presents for friends and family and those looking for something to brighten their home.
The shops have been designed to reflect the herdy ethos "Made to make you smile" and present the entire product range as a whole so that people can get a real feel for the company.
Something for everyone - the herdy range includes practical and useful kitchenware in the form of tea towels, aprons and mugs. There are also stationery products, crafting items to create your own wool felt Herdwick sheep, or to knit your own herdy rucksack – and can even “buy the t-shirt” in herdy's signature colours of purple, green, orange, pink, blue or grey.
The range is constantly being developed and new additions for 2014 include colourful herb planters, umbrellas, biscuit stamp and a sauce boat. herdy also has a conscience and the company work hard to ensure that as many products as possible are sourced and made in the UK. And when products are made abroad the company ensures that they are ethically sourced.
Every year the company donates a percentage of profits to support rural community projects, upland fell farming and the Herdwick sheep.
