About Us

The ScotlandShop collection is inspired and influenced by the multitude of colour to be found in our Scottish tartans, steeped in history yet still a fundamental part of the fashion industry. Combining the talents of the many fabulous designers and manufacturers we work with across Scotland, we are spoilt for choice with all these beautiful fabrics woven on our doorstep. The business was founded on not only a love of fashion, fabric and Scottish culture but also a desire to contribute to the development of the local rural economy here in the Scottish Borders. Founded in 2002 by Anna White, we have become a truly international organisation delivering all over the world on a daily basis and offering our products and service in 6 languages.
