We have so many gadgets and 'stuff' with us these days, Amy Britton designed her tweed product range based on the notion 'to carry'. All of her products are designed and made to contain something – from coins to glasses to smartphones.
Amy has come from a design-led background in interiors and architecture; she's always been interested in design, textiles and manufacturing. Amy is drawn towards vibrant and earthy colours of the Scottish coastal landscape where she grew up and the inland surrounding area of where she lives and works today.
All of her products are designed and handmade in Stirling, using a unique, contemporary Harris Tweed, which has been handwoven specifically for Amy. The bespoke, colourful tweed is inspired by the Scottish landscape and seasons.
Her products all adorn the Harris Tweed label, which can only be placed on goods made from authentic Harris Tweed, hand-woven by the islanders of the Outer Hebrides. Harris Tweed is the only cloth with a protected governance, governed by an Act of Parliament protected by the Harris Tweed Authority. It is made of 100% pure new wool that is dyed, blended, carded, spun, warped, woven and finished in the Outer Hebrides.
