Why are we called eskimo?

So why are we called eskimo? It’s a slightly convoluted tale of family, music, second chances, and the brilliance of a name. The turn of the 21st century was a great time for music. It was also a great time for radiators. Back then the founder of eskimo, Phil Ward, was involved in both, simultaneously DJ'ing, running a record label and running the family engineering business whilst the concept of making radiators that also looked good was just a twinkle in his youthful...

Column, sounds like Gollum – What’s different about eskimo’s COLUMN radiator?

Radiators. When you first think of them you probably visualise large, heavy ornate, traditional columns on sturdy feet. Then you start picturing those unsightly 80s versions but let's not go there. The Victorians, and later, the Edwardians, had a preference for decorative elegance with intricate scrolled details adorning heavy iron cast column radiators. They were quite something. Sadly, not so long ago, they were often discarded with distain and relegated to the skips and scrap yards, considered archaic in style....

It’s time to go vertical

What use is a towel rail, or towel warmer? Clue's in the name probably, but that’s not the whole story. Unless you’re one of a dying breed who only ever use a towel once and then wash it immediately, (costly both for you and the environment), then you need your towel rail to provide two simple functions. Offer useful hanging positions and dry your towels efficiently. Wet towels hanging about the bathroom (or worse still thrown over anything that provides...
