Award winning Designer Kirsteen Stewart started her business from the kitchen table in Orkney.  Initially with a range of hand printed accessories her business has evolved over the years and she also creates bold prints to empower women.  The pandemic saw a launch of an interiors range to enhance your home with colour and style. Quality and sustainability has always been at the heart of the business and making in the UK and teaching others to sew has been a passion throughout the growth of this business.

The SFS Spring Gathering is part-funded by Creative Scotland’s Open Fund, made possible with funds from The National Lottery and Scottish Government.
