Traditional, beautiful and practical Butler Sinks by Shaws of Darwen

1897 is where it all began for Shaws of Darwen. They had a vision to make the finest handcrafted fireclay sinks in the whole of England, and some 120 years on, the vision has come to life worldwide for the reputation of beauty, quality, craftsmanship and sheer practicality of the unique artisan products they design.

Here at Nicholas Bridger we are proud to be suppliers of Shaws of Darwen sinks, and our hand-selected range is simply stunning. They are made from a traditional heavy duty fireclay construction which is a unique blend from South West England and France. The clay is still mixed and poured by hand before being coated in a hard-wearing glaze and firing the sink over 1200 degrees Celsius.
