Pauline is a master craftswoman! This is such a beautifully made little satchel. It's so easy to use, light and comfortable and the attention to detail is clearly evident. Shipping and customer service: awesome 😀 I can't praise this shop enough!! Thank you Pauline.

The very beginnings of Christmas! I do love a Harris Tweed wreath decoration, hope you do too. Available today £40 including free P&P UK. Go on, it’s never too early for a little festive cheer wink
A customer asked me to make her a smaller version of the Satchel and I liked it so much I made a few more. I hope you like it too!
The Orb is only stamped on every 100 metres of Harris Tweed, and here's one (a bit faint against this mustard tweed) and it's been incorporated into this Linton Bag. You'll have to take my word for it though-it's stamped on the "wrong" side of the cloth!

About

For the love of Harris Tweed.

Ever since I was a little girl I've loved making things, anything really. My Granny used to make my sister and I clothes with her old Singer sewing machine from the cupboard under stairs and the sound of the ppprrrrrrr pppprrrrr coming from there was somewhat hypnotising to a small child.

I suppose that's where I first became aware of textiles and the endless possibilities of what you could do with a bale of fabric.

After leaving school I was lucky enough to gain a BSc Hons in Textile and Fashion Design from The Scottish College of Textiles (now Heriot Watt University) in Galashiels, where I honed my skills in designing and making. My journey then took me to Edinburgh where I worked in retail for about 10 years, and had my 2 kids.

Realising that I needed to have more creativity in my life, I decided to leave retail behind and come up with something new and fulfilling that would also allow me to spend time with my young family. Hense Pauline Lothian Designs was born!

My mum gave me a metre of bright pink Harris Tweed which she bought whilst on a trip to the Outer Hebrides, and well, that was it. I was hooked. This beautiful fabric, woven by hand by the weaver in his (or her) own home was a thing of beauty. For those of you not familiar with Harris Tweed it's a really rather special fabric. It's rich heritage and tradition is protected by an Act of Parliament which states that it must be made from 100% pure new wool dyed, spun and handwoven at the home of the weaver and finished in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. It's the only fabric in the world to be given this status.

To do this cloth justice, I make all my products by hand, in small quantities, with an emphasis on quality and design. My designs are simple, uncluttered and timeless and above all, let the cloth speak for itself. Many of my products come gift packaged, such as the coin purse, make-up bag, hip flask and cufflinks, and make lovely thoughtful presents.

I hope you like my range, and if you have any questions or comments I'd be delighted to hear from you!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blurb!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I am often asked if I am able to engrave the Hip Flasks. Unfortunately, I have neither the tools not the know-how to do this, but there is space on both the top and bottom of the flask for an engraver to do this for you.

Custom and personalised orders

There's only one of the item I like available. Can you make me more?

The answer is yes, I would be delighted to make up a custom order, and am often asked for several items for groomsmen and bridesmaid gifts. I can typically have an order ready within a few days.
