ROHL was the first company to market the Original Farmhouse Apron Sink design in North America over a decade ago. In 1897, Shaws was founded in Darwen, England. Over a century later, Shaws still employs its authentic handcrafted techniques. Each sink is stamped with the mark of its maker. And, every Shaws Sink is recyclable, lead free and environmentally friendly. Today, we are the only provider in North America of the Original Farmhouse Apron Sink, first manufactured by Shaws in 1897 and first marketed to North America by ROHL over a decade ago.
