Paper Houses Design create unique patterns incorporating fashionable trend forward Scottish style that will last. Inspiration mainly comes from the shapes, structures and textures found in the day to day, especially man made structures. Mhairi is always drawn to geometric shapes, there is something in their simplicity and the fact that they can be found in many forms.

If you look for quality, style and want to know the story behind what you buy then Paper Houses is the perfect brand for you.

This one woman textile design studio is based in Scotland and was set up by Mhairi McDowall, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD). A lover a pattern

    Hey I'm Mhairi Owner/Designer etc. here at Paper_Houses. It all started as an idea when I was at college in 2008 then it progressed when I was at Duncan of Jordanstone Dundee University studying printed textile design. In 2013 it became real!

Production partners

  • Eco Printing Company

    England, United Kingdom

    For our postcards & notebooks we use a high quality, eco printers in West Sussex, England. We have outsourced the printing of our designs as this manufacturer can print our designs on 100% recycled card in bigger quanitities. Team up, save the Earth.

  • Digital Printing Fabric Service

    Edinburgh, Scotland

    Our digitally printed fabric is printed by a brilliant, high quality manufacturer in Edinburgh. Digital printers are expensive pieces of equipment & we believe it is more sustainable to use a specialist digital printing company than buy our own.

  • Local Seamstress

    Stonehaven, Scotland

    Paper_Houses sometimes has the help of a brilliant local seamstress to sew up our scarves. When there is a large order/quick turnaround we work with this highly skilled seamstress to get the order out on time and to the same high standard.
