Aga’s “Best in Show” The British Textile Company, from £8.95
These Scandi-inspired textiles have been lovingly handcrafted by the British Textile Company. Each piece celebrates country living but is modern-looking enough to suit most kitchens. Created in partnership with AGA, the materials provide heat protection, grip and a barrier against grease.

This pastry rolling pin, designed with Master Pâtissier Christophe Michalak, is ideal for keen bakers. The removable thickness rings let you measure with precision and it’s freezer-safe to keep the dough cool when rolling. It comes with a heatproof mat so you can transfer dough straight into the oven.
