Winter Woolies Window

WindowSept14With the weather taking a turn for the chilly, it’s the perfect time to showcase our new lambs wool collection of scarf’s, hats, mitts AND headbands in our winter woollies window!  Kirsteen Stewart’s bright cheery collection is the kind of textiles that make you long for a chilly day, get all layered up and take on the elements.

MapsBrand new for Autumn Winter 2014/2015 we have Kirsten’s geometric linear pattern “Maps” now available (above) little fluffy cloud collection “Azure” (below), and her cheery little love heart motif “Hearts”.azureThe “Hearts” collection was designed for “Breakthrough Breast Cancer” so a percentage of all sales goes to this most excellent charity.  As will all of Kirsteen Stewart’s knitwear, these ranges are made with an emphasis upon ethical sourcing and production, supporting sustainable living within the fashion and textile industrypink heartshearts-model-nude-magenta

50 Shades of Scotland

50shadesofScotandEnglWell, this is pretty bang on topic for today’s Independence Refferendom here in Scotland, where we’ve all been balancing out our own 50 shades of Scotland, England, Nothern Ireland and Wales.  There is a real aptmosphere of anticipation and comunity spirit in Edinburgh City centre today we expect a healthy turn out at today’s polls.

These posters by Emily Mackenzie are a light-hearted pallet of colours enjoyed by the artist as she associates them with certain aspects of Scottish and English culture.  They look fab on their own, and as a pair.  For more details, have a peep here.
