Heatwave & hay fever

In keeping with this year’s blog theme, here’s our round up of activity from Both Barrels HQ during the month of July. It’s been hot & there’s been a lot of hay fever, hence the punchy article headline (sadly no puns just the brutal, sweaty/sneezy, truth).

New Home

The culmination of around 3 months solid graft went live early this month & my word we’re proud of our snazzy new online home! The website has been refreshed across the board, a move inspired & informed by 18 month’s worth of listening, learning & development. The Both Barrels website now features far greater delivery of detail, a much more rounded sense of who we are, what we represent & ways in which we’re useful in your busy lives.

Behind the scenes we’ve worked on new creative directions, themes, narrative & execution of content. This has been a mind-bending journey but one we’re proud to stand by to represent our innovative, high quality, UK Made product.

After reading this blog, have a click around the top bar & see what’s behind each new dedicated tab & entirely overhauled shop section. As ever, we keep our eyes & ears open to feedback so if you have any comments, suggestions or would just like to send us an internet high five please get in touch via email at hello@thisisbothbarrels.com


To celebrate our new website & all of its marvelousness, we’ve launched our first ever giveaway competition as part of the giddiness. The reaction so far has been great & there’s still time to enter – all the details are here www.facebook.com/BothBarrels.

Now that we have our website in a bright, new & shiny place our thoughts turn towards the plans for the rest of this calendar year & developments planned for the start of 2019. Looking ahead, we’ll be confirming autumn & winter appearances at our fabulous local Altrincham Market alongside completing our listing & partnership with Not On The High Street. We are also starting to research & development in to new fabrics, fittings & designs for new product ideas which we’ll be refining over the next few months. As always, it’s all go!

Enjoy summer holiday season – hopefully some of you will be taking us with you 🙂
