We're delighted to announce that Shaws of Darwen has been awarded entry into the Guild of Master Craftsmen!
The Guild of Master Craftsmen
The Guild of Master Craftsmen is the UK's most established trade association, representing skilled and rated tradesmen, craftspeople, artisans and other professionals who strive for excellence in workmanship.
It's a fantastic and historic institution that recognises unrivalled skills and services. Shaws are now proud to be in the company of Guild Members including Aston Martin, Bentley Motors, Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and many other amazing British companies.
Each of our sinks is handcrafted using traditional materials and techniques unchanged for 120 years and many of the workforce are local people who have spent most of their working lives plying their craft in making the world-renowned Shaws sinks. Each sink is stamped with the name of the master craftsman who made it.
We've been producing luxury fireclay products since Valentine's Day, 1897, and still operate from the same site in the rolling hills of Darwen, Lancashire. Having refined fireclay production to an 'art form' each Shaws sink is individually hand-made, making them 'simply the best in the world' - traditional quality built sinks to 'world-class' manufacturing standards.
