It’s hard to walk past the window display at By Rosie – a mere glance will tempt you from right across the road to discover the store and workshop where all of the items are produced right there, on site.
By Rosie goes into its fifth summer, this year, continuing to create beautiful, colourful and contemporary bags, accessories and now the ‘Harris Tweed Hoody,’ all from 100% genuine Harris Tweed cloth produced on the islands. By Rosie aims to produce top quality, handmade and considered items with flair and original use of design and palette.
‘Inspired by the colours of the islands’, each piece combines different colours and weaves of the fabulous heritage cloth in unusual and creative combinations.
This year the product range is bigger than ever, from small accessories such as brooches and make-up bags, to cushion covers and handbags, hoodys and skirts.
The quirky workshop is always buzzing away, with the wee shop adjacent providing an absolute treat for tweed lovers and supporters of handmade modern craft.
