About Us and Our Ethos
Celebrating Scottish Craftsmanship
Nestled in a small community of artisan shops just by Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile, the Scottish Textiles Showcase has gained a reputation as a treasure trove of quality textiles made by Scottish wool mills and artisans. Here you will find knowledgeable staff, happy to advise on the provenance of a range of beautiful textiles products. Our mission is to celebrate the Made in Scotland story and the talented makers themselves. We want to pass this information on to our customers so they too can appreciate the craftsmanship skills required to make the beautiful products on our shelves. Tartan, tweed, cashmere, waxed cotton and lace, Scotland's textiles are in a class of their own and have gained a world wide reputation for excellence.
Sustainable Living with Natural Fibres
Pure wool, cashmere, alpaca, cotton and silk - all our products are made with natural fibres and we highlight sustainable practices where British yarns are used. Founder Director Kitty Bruce-Gardyne has been a long term champion of Scotland's rich textiles heritage and is keen to share her passion for a story which remains physically off the beaten track and chimes with the need for us to buy less and buy local. From the Scottish Borders in the south, to the far flung islands of the Outer Hebrides in the west and Shetland in the north, the Scottish textiles story is naturally rich and varied.
