Carol Smith, founder and owner says: "I love Scotland ~ in particular Scottish & Burns music, poetry, the beautiful landscape, tartans & tweeds.....oh, and the ever-increasing variety of wonderful 'small-batch' Scottish gins, infused with everything from sea-kelp to home-grown botanicals, herbs & spices"
A passion for Scottish singing and spoken word, writing lyrical ‘ditties’ over the years has emerged in some of Carol's products with her own individual themed verses.
Crafting too has been a part of her life since she was a youngster ~ dressmaking, knitting, model-making, sketching & colouring. These combined interests have become the catalysts for what has now evolved into her business.
As well as the popular Scottish-themed products, Carol offers Wedding and Baby collections, plus a selection of over 100 little 'Lucky Sixpence' designs. A recent addition is the 'Outlander-inspired' range of mugs, coasters, key-rings, Jacobite dram glasses and drinks charms.
Carol continued: "My products are available online via my website and Etsy shop (we post worldwide) and I supply to retail shops, visitor attractions and tourist outlets in Scotland and, more recently, overseas in USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
My range of luxury horseshoe gift sets for Brides, in a range of tartan choices, has been extremely popular with our online customers, now that weddings are at last going ahead with some confidence! I am delighted to have had some corporate event enquiries too....creating something truly bespoke is something I really enjoy'
A new 'Scottish Sentiments' collection is currently in the pipeline.
"I am passionate about my business, and have lots of new ideas to bring to fruition in the near future"
