We are very pleased to be a stockist for a range of products by Scottish textile designer Gillian Kyle
All the aprons, tea towels & bags are made by a small, family-run firm who take the utmost pride in creating every item. The care and attention to detail in producing even the simplest of products is second to none – and the results speak for themselves. They use organic cotton for our products, and begin the process by cutting each piece to the right size, then the products are screen printed with our designs and then they are sewn, finished and checked. They provide skilled jobs in a rural area where they are in short supply and take the time to train each seamstress & printer to the level necessary, which can take around 3 months of tireless practice.
The beautiful fine bone china mugs in the range are from a great wee company located in the historic heart of the UK ceramics industry; Stoke-on-Trent. They employ a highly skilled workforce and are one of the few remaining businesses in the area (and in the country) capable of doing this kind of work to such a high standard. The use of fine bone china gives all the mugs their crisp whiteness and slight translucency.
We love the quirky and iconic designs and we hope that you will too.
