What do you think is so special about the industry?
I am fortunate to have met and collaborated with various creatives throughout my time working on different projects. There’s a wealth of talent in the Scottish creative industry. It takes a lot of determination to build a brand or career and I’ve met numerous people with that trait. For me, the success stories of others are a huge inspiration.
Name one (or more!) Scottish textile designer/manufacturer you admire.
I would have to say jewellery designer Ruth Morrison. Originally from the Isle of Harris, Ruth combines precious metals and genuine Harris Tweed to create original pieces for both men and women.
We’ve collaborated with Ruth on our online store, showcasing some of the best designs from her men's range including cufflinks and tie pins. I was lucky enough to see some of the work in progress in her Glasgow studio.
