Our story

We are a small family business, based in a coastal village in Moray, North East Scotland, our designs and colours are inspired by this stunning area which never fail to rejuvenate, revive and inspire…

Our collection has been designed in Scotland and hand crafted in India using traditional artisan methods including Bandhani (hand tie dye technique), exclusive in-house embroidery designs finished with hand beading detail.

Our luxury resort wear collection includes unique embroidered beaded silk kaftans, dresses, tunics and accessories in beautiful vibrant shades inspired by coast and sea.

Our range has been designed to compliment our range of handmade gemstone silver jewellery (Poppy Jewellery).  Think beautiful handcrafted unique silk dresses, jackets, cardigans and scarves in rich jewel, coastal inspired colours of indigo, cobalt blue, jade, lapis, turquoise, thistle….

Unique fabrics…

Our pure silk bandhani pattern fabric is created by hand, using a traditional tie-dyeing method (Bandhani is an artisan craft from Rajasthan) and each piece has a slightly different pattern and is therefore unique.

Our exclusive in-house designed embroidery is finished with hand beading detail.

Our colour block silk dresses are made from 100% pure Bengal silk, a beautiful, lightweight handloom silk produced for us by an artisan community in the village of Islampur, Bengal. The silk is woven using handlooms by highly skilled weavers.

Our jackets and scarves are made from recycled silk saris, which are carefully selected for quality and design and are finished with handstitching.
