The Isle Mill for British Textile Week
The Isle Mill specialises in creative furnishing fabrics made in Scotland since 1783. The company combines the finest natural fibres with time-honoured techniques to design and weave distinctive fabrics from classic paisleys, plaids and tweeds, to contemporary textured plains, damasks and the finest sheers. Collections are inspired by the natural splendour and breath-taking colours of the surrounding Scottish Highlands.
The Isle Mill carries an extensive range of furnishing fabrics. The company has extensive stock to facilitate excellence of service and quick delivery. In addition, advanced computerised design technology means the firm is highly flexible and happy to undertake design projects to meet clients’ specific requirements. The Isle Mill benefits from a Showroom at its Perth headquarters, clients and customers are most welcome to visit.
The Isle Mill creates and weaves a stunning array of throws and accessories, all of which are made in Scotland. The company says: “Our accessories complement our interior contract and domestic furnishing fabrics beautifully. Our accessories are woven from natural fibres, predominantly wool. Luxurious, durable, biodegradable, recyclable and renewable wool is the natural choice for interior environments. Our collections combine innovative design and also traditional Scottish pattern and technique. We are inspired by the natural splendour of the Scottish landscape. Our throws are perfectly suited to a cosy Scottish surrounding”.
The Isle Mill Designer Siobhan Smith says: “I feel that British textiles is the best quality in the world and also by doing all of our manufacturing in Scotland we are supporting local communities. Working mainly with wool, we actively try to choose materials which are biodegradable and sustainable.”
