We are really pleased to report Trotters have taken centre stage in the Rohan Originals Collection on display in Rohan Keswick

Trotters appeared in various fabrics.  All had contrasting waist bands and the D-ring.  The Helenca fabric was a super fabric and time has proven that it was truly sustainable
