How do the clothes wash?
The clothes wash extremely well as they are 100% cotton drill. Nina wore them to plant up a show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show this year so they took quite a pounding - getting dirty every day and being washed every night - and they came out beautifully.
Isn't beige an impractical colour for gardening in?
Not at all. In the warmer weather this is a much better colour to garden in, especially if you're going for it with the digging.
If beige is not for you, our Classic collection of darker colours are perfect for the muddier months of the year.
Are the knee pads waterproof?
The knee pads are lightly padded but not waterproof. Nina has found that the material is pretty good at resisting the damp though. In the heavy wet weather we recommend using a kneeling pad too.
Will you adding to your collection?
Absolutely, we are already in the design phase for our next range of clothing and other gardening items so watch this space!
The shoulder straps of the dungarees feel quite tight when I first put them on, is this normal?
The straps of the dungarees are 100% cotton. We deliberately took the decision not to include elastic as this is the first part of the garment to go and we want these to last you for years. We have found that after a little wearing and the first wash, the straps soften up considerably. We have also provided two different button settings. If you are particularly long in the body, you might prefer the trousers (or if you're happy with a needle and thread, you could move the buttons to suit your exact body length).
