The Original Farmhouse Sink


The Origianl Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks have always held a popular spot in kitchen design. Everyone loves the look. From the sturdy apron front, to the industrial stainless-steel updated models, apparently homeowners can’t get enough. But recently the “Farmhouse” style has exploded. From Instagram to Pinterest the most shared photos are those that highlight the modern farmhouse design. But not all farmhouse sinks are created equal. In 1897, Shaws of Lancashire England, introduced the first, original, and one of a kind, apron front fireclay farmhouse sink.

So why are these sinks so special? Their quality is unsurpassed. Every single Shaw’s sink that Rohl designs is created the same way it was done over one hundred years ago. It is hand poured, shaped, and stamped with the name of the individual artisan that creates it.

These stunning apron front sinks resist acid, alkali, scratches, and impact. These designs are timeless and compliment any style. Rohl has also added a commercial grade stainless steel apron front model for the homeowner who is looking for the same quality construction, but with a modern flare.

Shaw’s Rohl Farmhouse sinks, faucets, and accessories, are committed to using local artisans to create every product that is produced. From towns and villages in Western Europe to New Zealand, each piece is made using techniques handed down from generation to generation.

Rohl is also committed to using materials that are locally sourced. “All ROHL Collections use genuine materials – Solid brass, ceramic cartridges and fittings, heavy ball fireclay – sourced from the regions in which they are made.” And they have been made in the same venues for decades. If you’re looking for a true farmhouse sink, then look no further that the original farmhouse sink from Rohl, whose quality is unsurpassed.
