The Company was founded as J.Haws in 1886 and based in Clapton, North East London
John Haws first worked out his improved design and method of manufacture from a French made waterpot (or can as they are now called) and designed a can with perfect balance.
Whether full, half full or empty the can could be used without undue strain to the operator. To this day, the original design has not been altered in any major way.
John soon designed and patented his very own watering can. A can with a canister body and breast to prevent spillages while pouring. It had two handles, one for carrying and one for tipping.
It was soon recognized by top gardeners and in 1894 received the National Chrysanthemum Society Gold Medal award for his improved watering can.
To this day Haws Watering Cans are Made in England, as they have been for 130 Years
At Haws they believe and trust in the quality of their products. Their watering cans have been tried and tested for over a hundred years, and they are confident in the expert workmanship and materials we use.
