Like all the best ideas Tartan Twist began on an October holiday in Sutherland - one of many wet and windy ones spent in the heart of the Highlands. Inspired by a love of Scotland, the first collections took shape over a blazing log fire and a glass of single malt whisky. Gillian Crawford, the creative director behind the Scottish fine jewellery brand, Lily Blanche, and her sister Lyndsey, a design entrepreneur, sat down with sketch pads, materials and the idea of bringing a modern twist to traditional tartans, fusing Scotland’s rich heritage with the best of contemporary design.
What We Do
They had no idea then how successful the business would become, winning awards from the outset. In 2014, Gillian took over the business and moved it to a beautiful Arts & Crafts era studio in Stirling where most of the collections are still made by hand. Stylish, fun, affordable, enduring and downright gorgeous, our collections reflect who we are and what we treasure. Designed in Scotland, Tartan Twist will make you smile and may even capture your heart.. For our sister brand Lily Blanche, please visit https://www.lilyblanche.com/
