As William Morris famously said “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”. We believe that this Roberts Radio, customised by us at Revived Radios in Williow Bough oilcloth, fulfils both those criteria.

I’ve always loved this Cath Kidston pattern so was very pleased to track some down and customise a radio in it. See this and others on my Etsy site: RevivedRadios.com
I’ve been hard at work in the Revived Radios workshop producing some craftily, customised, christmas-coloured (ok that’s enough alliteration) Roberts Radios. One in a gorgeous red and green, genuine Harris Tweed from the Shawbost mill on the Isle of Harris and one in rare sweetheart rose oilcloth from Cath Kidston. Both radios are fully refurbished and guaranteed and come in a Revived Radios gift box. They make a unique christmas gift. Even the person who has everything won’t have one of these!

At Revived Radios we’ve been customising Roberts Radios in Harris Tweed and other fabulous fabrics for over four years. We thought it about time that we fitted one with a proper tweed jacket. This required quite a lot of work on our sewing skills so we hope you like the result. His left lapel even has a buttonhole for the flower of your choice. N.B. this Primrose is from our garden no woodland flowers were harmed etc. See it at: Roberts Radio in Tweed
We have recently refurbished two original analogue Roberts Revival radios. Roberts were inspired to create this model by the demand created when a vintage Roberts radio was featured in an 80s Martini advert. These were some of the last Roberts Radios to bear the ‘Made in England’ label and were upholstered in much more durable coverings than the later Roberts Revivals. One is in a ravishing, red Rexine cover and one in beautiful blue, genuine leather. After a full check up (with any dodgy parts replaced) and a good clean and polish they are looking as good as when they left the Roberts’ Factory in East Mosley. See them and our other re-covered and refurbished radios at www.revivedradios.com
We’ve been working hard at Revived Radios customising Roberts Radios in beautiful Harris Tweed, sourced direct from the Outer Hebrides at Harris Tweed Direct. They are finished to an exceptional standard and we think they make fantastic gifts. All are fully tested, guaranteed and carefully packed in a Revived Radios gift box.

At Revived Radios we were recently asked to produce a custom radio for the retirement of their CEO Kevin Cahill. We were happy to do this and it looks like Kevin was happy with the result. Happy Retirement!
