At Revived Radios we have all these genuine Cath Kidston oilcloth patterns with which we can produce a custom Roberts Radio or re-cover your own radio. Don’t delay if you fancy one as they are in limited supply and are no longer produced by Cath!
STOP PRESS: The Little Birds and Strawberry patterns are now all gone but we have some new patterns: Cath Kidston Stars and Squirrels. Visit this link for full details: Roberts Radio Re-covering Service
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
This is a handsome 1990s vintage Roberts Radio R737 customised in Little Birds Oilcloth by Cath Kidston. The Radio has been fully refurbished inside and out and is available at: revivedradios.com
We spent our summer holidays on the beautiful Isle of Mull off the western coast of Scotland. Whilst there we visited the Ardalanish Weavers www.ardalanish.com which can be found just behind the fabulous Ardalanish beach. Situated on a farm they weave gorgeous tweeds using the wool from their own Hebridean sheep. We were particularly taken with this tweed called Mull Granite which closely echoes the colours of the pink granite outcrops of the Ross of Mull. We couldn’t resist bringing some back to re-cover this Roberts Radio – available shortly at www.revivedradios.com
As I’m a bit of a bird fancier I just couldn’t resist this fabulous oilcloth from Cath Kidston, although I’m not convinced of its ornithological exactitude. It would be great for listening to Annie Nightingale don’t you think? www.revivedradios.com
We all love alliteration at Revived Radios and our range of ravishing Roberts Revival Radios is unrivalled
