At Clementine we are proud to stock a range of gifts hand-made in Scotland by some very talented makers and craftspeople.
Here is a little introduction to some of them…
Pink Geranium is a local Edinburgh small business that has been exclusive to Clementine for over six years. A constantly evolving range of oilcloth accessories are handmade using mother’s old Singer sewing machine. The best sellers are the brilliantly useful shoulder bags featured here.
Lavender’s Green is a small business run by Nicky Campbell, a busy mum of three, who wanted her family to enjoy the benefits of using pure, chemical-free products made from natural ingredients.
All the products are made in her home-based workshop in Midlothian. They are hand-made using the best and purest of ingredients. There is no mass production – everything is made by Nicky herself, by hand.
Debbie Lines started Towie Design in 2009 after moving to rural Aberdeenshire from a life in the city. She has always loved knitting and Towie Design has given her the opportunity to indulge her love of wool and colour and provide an outlet for her creativity.
Towie Design aims to make luxury items for you to enjoy both for yourself and your home.
Whilst on maternity leave, Leanne Cornelius became inspired by lots of lovely handmade gifts in the shop windows of Edinburgh, and thought how lovely it would be to make her own. The only flaw in the plan was that she hadn’t crocheted since she was about 6 and had totally forgotten how.
After a slightly lumpy looking pair of mittens and a hat that didn’t even fit her three-year-old’s baby doll, she got the hang of it and decided to make hats for her daughters that were fun, colourful, pretty and above all comfy (so they’d actually want to wear them without complaining!).
Soon friends, other mums at nursery, friends of friends and once even a stranger on a train started asking if she’d make them for their children, and Misty Thistle was born.
Leanne’s maternity leave is now long finished but she still crochets in her spare time. She loves making pretty things in lovely colours and it always makes her smile when she bumps into a little person in the street wearing one of her designs and she thinks, ‘I made that!’
