Scotland enjoys an evocative and distinguished history when it comes to cloth and clothing traditions.
Fair Isle, Shetland and Sanquhar Knits, Turkey Red printed cloth, the Paisley, Harris Tweed, Ayrshire Whitework needlework and the Mackintosh raincoat are all instantly recognisable for their quality, integrity and supreme cottage industry skill or classic manufacturing and making techniques.
This notion of quality, integrity and supreme making skills underpins the philosophical rationale of our programmes.
