Organisations like The Scottish Design Exchange, Scotland:Redesigned, Craft Scotland, Local Heroes and Wear Eponymous are fantastic for supporting, promoting and celebrating local designers and artists, but without customers, these creative talents are forced to close and go back to the day job. My work and of course my blog aims to encourage people to #shoplocal, so I hope this post helps you lovely readers to discover and explore emerging labels based right here in Scotland.
