An awesome place
Jul 2019 • Couples
This little treasure might be not easy to find but it definitely worth it. Get away from Stornaway shops without any soul and visit this young lady starting her business in a remote village. Patient and passionate, you will love your time spent there.

Wonderful visit
May 2019
I had a wonderful visit to the great shop. The lovely lass showed me the process of her work, it was fascinating to understand the effort of what goes into the cloth.
I bought some of her work and I will always treasure it. Don’t miss this opportunity to truly experience Harris Tweed and Island hospitality.

Unique sea shore jewellery
Aug 2018 • Couples
I fell in love with Miriam’s seashell jewellery during a trip to Stornaway last summer. I have since bought several sets for Christmas presents via Facebook. She posted them to me at very low cost. She uses beautiful shells and seaglass sourced from the wild beaches of the Outer Hebrides and fashions them into timeless pieces. I am delighted to hear she is developing the business further weaving Harris tweed products.
