HAWS

Haws was founded by John Haws in 1886 as a company based in Clapton, North East London.  John Haws first worked out his improved method of manufacture from a French made 'waterpot' or watering can as they are now called.  A can with a canister body and breast to prevent spillages while pouring was born, it had two handles; one for pouring and one for tipping.  The new invention formed a watering can much easier to carry and tip, more adapted for use than any other can brought to market and it was soon recognised by gardening bodies across the country.

                                                              

In 1911 Haws were invited to exhibit at the first Chelsea Flower Show and then in 1925 production was moved from Clapton to Bishops Stortford in Herfordshire where around 40 employees handmade around 200-250 cans per week.  During this transition the medallion featured on all of the cans bore the new manufacturing address and it was made clear to the public at this time that your can was not a genuine can unless it features the Registered Trade Mark.

In 1953 production moved again, this time to Stourbridge and again the brass medallion was changed to mark this.  Haws then went on to start producing injection moulded plastic cans which were lighter to use and cheaper alternatives.  Then in 1982 Haws was sold to an engineering manufacturing company 'Eclipse Sprayers' and moved to another location, Smethwick in Birmingham and owned by John Pennock.  Haws retains the quality and longevity of its past still today, some 130 years after the company was formed.  Shop our range of Haws products for Nationwide UK Home Delivery.
