    My designs focus on simplicity and elegance using two beautiful Scottish fabrics

    I produce designs that appeal to women who appreciate quality and craftsmanship and who have an understanding of fashion. I have sewn from a very young age and was inspired by my Nana, a talented seamstress who would make garments using parachute fabric and curtain fabric when fabric was in short supply after both World Wars.

    I have always had a deep passion for textiles, particularly natural fibre

    When I started my Elizabeth Martin Tweed Brand, introducing Scottish lace as a natural partner to the iconic Harris Tweed was just a natural progression. Both Harris Tweed Hebrides and Morton Young and Borland (MYB), have a wonderful, traceable history in manufacture and both have had to update their looms to survive.

    My obsession has always been the importance of quality and detailed finish

    MYB Lace has a rich heritage, the Mill being founded in 1900. It eventually became one of the largest mills in the area. Today they are the only producer in the world manufacturing lace with original Nottingham Lace Looms. These machines have been modified and now network to the CAD machines in the design office. Their biggest exports are to Russia and America.

    I am very excited to be collaborating with MYB Textiles...

    who have expert designers working on new and original concepts. The original Mill with its wooden floors still intact and the unique Nottingham Lace Looms are a part our Scottish Heritage. Our designs are about attention to detail. There are no bells and bobbles, just a desire to let the luxury fabrics speak for themselves and shine.
