In the last three years, Briers has launched a series of new products including Stardust Wellys, Floral patterned gloves with matching kneelers, Boppers, High Heeled Boots and the Gruffalo® range. During the same period the company has achieved a steady rise in turnover despite a difficult economic climate and pressures on consumer spending. Briers believes that its willingness to create bespoke ranges for retailers, factory testing and customer care are major contributory factors in its recent growth. Another cornerstone of the Briers brand is the input of Founder and Managing Director, Jackie Eades’ female perspective into what traditionally, has been seen as a male-dominated sector.
