Artisan Out of Stock Batches
As a brand who is a stong advocate for buy less, love more, we make less. Therefore you may find some of our items are out of stock quickly. Our current stock quantites are always listed, therefore if you do love our item and it is in stock we just want you to know we may not be creating the exact same item again in the future. We love how unique our creations are, just like their owners!
What will they say in 200 years....
I bought the bigger bag a couple months ago to prepare for traveling again. I needed to housesit for a long weekend and instead of travel sized items I packed my full sized items. They all fit!!! This bag is well made with a big sturdy zipper and is absolutely beautiful. I’m thrilled that it keeps all my stuff in one place and I don’t have to use the big food storage bags anymore :). Love it, love it. Love to support small!
I was so excited to open the beautifully packed box and feel this Elements water light scarf. It exceeded my expectations, the colour is a beautiful shade of blue that reminds me of the striking mediterranean sea. It is luxurious, soft, lightweight and so warm. It’s obvious how much care and love has gone into making this scarf. Prickly Thistle are a step ahead of the rest and every piece is an investment and something to treasure forever. I have a few other pieces that I love, but was particularly excited to get this one as blue is my favourite colour. Thank you Clare & Team.
The vibrant colors of this scarf bring a sunny smile to my face every time I wear it. The hidden word POP is bonus to find in the weaving, like a secret decoder ring.
I have been waiting for this pattern to come in a slender scarf and had to have it once it did. The blue and green color combination bring my two favorite colors together in a super soft scarf. I was so excited that I even wore it on a hot day in July.
I love this slender, soft scarf with the bold sunflower yellow running through it. It's silky and light, so I've been using it even on the warm days, especially when I'm shopping in the cold air conditioned stores. It's a bit less bulky than my "First Love" scarf, so a nice alternative when I want something sleeker. I'm so happy I bought this!
The skirt is beautifully crafted. The straps are sturdy & stylish. The detachable pocket is super cute! As always, great quality, & you can tell it’s made with Highland heart ❤️!
The Rebel Weave was my favourite so I asked for this for my birthday last October and I wore it every day during the winter! It is so soft and warm and goes with everything! I can’t wait for Autumn so I can get it out of it’s bag again, which was a lovely touch to get with it.
Stunning scarf, generous size and vivid colors
I knew it was going to be gorgeous but when I got it in my hands, I was really more pleased than I could have imagined. The feel....the beauty....oh my gosh y'all are sooooo talented. You truly are adding beauty to this world....what a gift y'all create for us all to enjoy! This Texan with Scottish roots absolutely LOVES it and I will be placing another order. To Clare and her amazing crew - THANK YOU!!!! Be blessed!
I bought two of these beauty's to go with my Highland 14 throw. I left a review and photo for the throw that includes the cushions. I could not be happier with this purchase. The quality and workmanship is superb. And the idea behind them makes me happy that I am part of the rebellion. Thank you Prickly Thistle!
A lifelong Chicagoan, I now live in a north shore Chicago suburb called Highland Park. My home was built in 1905 and was a military base bachelor officer quarters at the old Fort Sheridan. Our 3rd floor is a wide open space we have turned into a media room. Facing the large screen TV are several chairs and a couch. The couch has never looked better. It is now adorned with a beautiful Highland 14 throw and two Highland 14 cushions. The quality, workmanship, history, and purpose behind these works of art make me smile each time I see them. I am proud to be a rebel in this fabric rebellion and thank you "Men in Kilts" for helping me find the Prickly Thistle!
This is actually my third maxi kilt but I couldn’t resist the kilted yoga tartan (I adore my blanket scarf!) The colours and style are so versatile and I love the ethos of a zero waste, sustainable garment that will form a core part of my wardrobe
After watching the ‘how to wear’ video with Claire I loved the thought of this versatile jacket. The weave and colour is great and I can’t wait to try out all the different combinations for casual and dressed up occasions. A jacket that will never you out of style!
I've been a seamstress for many years, so I know quality fabric when I see and touch it. And this is quality fabric! The surface is smooth and it has a firm hand. The drape is rounded. Medium weight just right for all sorts of sewing projects. The colors have a depth to them. Not just one note and bland. I haven't figured out what I'm going to use my yard for yet, but I can't resist taking it out now and then to touch and play with. Fabric nerds know what I'm talking about. lol Absolutely top level fabric. Beautiful!
I bought this during the heat and humidity of summer, so I haven't had a chance to field test it yet. But just pulling it over my head for a try on let me know that it's definitely going to be a go-to come fall. It's so soft and comfortable. Also, being a Hamilton, I have no fear of bright red tartan. lol It's quite flattering to the complexion.
