Iconic pottery brand Emma Bridgwater and Russell Hobbs are bringing a dose of adorable to British kitchens this August with a new line of toasters and kettles to match its cheery crockery.
Emma Bridgewater, the British brand specialising in hand-made and hand-decorated pottery and based in Stoke-on-Trent has long been spotted on breakfast tables. It is also known for its tradition of commemorative pottery celebrating milestones like royal weddings.
Launching on 15 August, the two Russell Hobbs and Emma Bridgewater ranges will feature the recognisable Polka Dot and Toast & Marmalade patterns in 2 slice (£69.99) and 4 slice (£79.99) toasters, as well as 1.7L and 1.5L kettles (£79.99).
"In making a lifetime’s worth of pots of tea, I’ve boiled water in an array of kettles, and it’s probably fair to say that the kettle I turn to most often is a reliable electric one made by Russell Hobbs. Of course, I do usually drink that tea out of an Emma Bridgewater mug," Emma Bridgwater said.
Emma Bridgewater has also created a limited-edition half pint mug to celebrate the collaboration. Retailing for £19.95, the design features a sponge pattern with kettles & teapots in cheery polka-dot colours.
“We’ve added the iconic and endearing Emma Bridgewater British style to the breakfast ranges to make every mug of tea and slice of toast more enjoyable," said Dominic Lewis, marketing manager for Russell Hobbs.
