Earth Day Pirate Jumper

Love this jumper, I’ve had so many compliments when wearing it! The colours and design are fab- thank you again Prickly Thistle for another beautiful wear!

Probably the best gift I've ever given myself!

This kilt is is so stunning and even better then I thought it would be. It hugs my waistline perfectly and compliments me so well. The gals at Prickly Thistle are so wonderful to work with! Thank you so much for everything!!

LAST Black House Blanket Scarf
Lucie Nechanská (Prague, CZ)
Slate Weave

I can warmly recommend, the delivery was fast, the packaging was beautiful. I was very pleased with the personal message, as well as the cute little gifts that were attached to the scarf.
I love the scarf from the first touch and smell. It is just perfect. I just have to learn to be careful about snagging the threads because of its rough texture, the threads pull out easily. The next model I order will definitely be smooth. But this one better describes me and my love for the rugged Scottish countryside 🙂

LAST Hat & Neck Warmer Bundle
Sandra Swanson (Calgary, CA)
How can it not be Amazing!

I bought this set in anticipation of spending the 2023/24 winter in Scotland. I am currently in Canada. It was shipped to family in Glasgow, awaiting my arrival. How can this not be perfect coming from this incredible womxn owned and run business!? Read their story, their 5 threads, you too will be propelled to support such an incredible group of dynamic people! Can’t wait to wear this and the scarf!!

PRE-ORDER Climate Stripes Blanket

An Amazing Treasure

Whenever I want something of perfection I go to Prickly Thistle. I have never been disappointed.
The blanket I recently purchased was no exception. Perfect weave, perfect colors, perfect packaging…. Just a whole lot of love.

LAST Pink Thistle Slender Scarf

Soft Splash of Color

Black is my go-to coat color. But a scarf with some color brightens it up. This scarf has everything, softness, texture, color. Love it!

LAST POP Thistle Slender Scarf
Peta Murray (Melbourne, AU)
Prickly Thistle made a faux-Scot very happy.

I am loving myself sick in my Prickly Thickle Slender Scarf and am sporting it very proudly through wintery weather here in Melbourne, Australia. I love everything about it including the exchange I had with the team, pre-purchase, the exquisite packaging in which it arrived, and Prickly Thistles’ rallying cries for an ethical, sustainable and tartan-led future. I would gladly purchase from them again, and if I ever get back to Scotland, they will be on my itinerary!

"The One" Belt
Lesley Craig (Kilmarnock, GB)
The One

Such a beautiful and versatile belt - a great investment. Loving wearing it with jeans, work trousers and pirate pants too. Will be wearing it with my shorts too once the sun comes out. Don’t keep it for good - it will getter better with age 😁

25% Deposit Batch 2/2023X - Maxi Kilt
Tania McClymont (Aberdeen, GB)

The lady’s are amazing and really friendly. I received my maxi kilt in a very quick time and it’s amazing! I have had so many compliments, told them where I got it and how amazing the product is.

Very Important Rebel (VIR) Membership
Marie Sajlntander-Wolfson (Holland, US)

Good morning Sister Rebels.....joining VIR just seemed to be the logical thing to do as the question it answered was NOT IF I was going to make another Thistle purchase but WHEN I would be doing it to further add to my existing treasured pieces. The program benefits (previews and bonuses) are just another example of how customer oriented Clare And the staff are. For me, joining VIR was as much a supporting decision as ro who this wonderful company is at its core as what is produces. Rebellious as ever, Marie Wolfson

Tee X Limited Edition X Rebel Heart
Bridget McComas (Cincinnati, US)
Bad A@#$ Classy

I needed something that made a statement but was still elegant and classy for work and the rebel tee hit it. Something about the way the Tartan Lines shape and frame is so flattering. It's versatile too! I've paired it with a pencil skirt, jeans and leather pants.

It may be my go to travel top!

I'll definitely be splurging on Clare's designs more often! Also our trip to the mill was the highlight of our holiday. Even my 13 year old son was interested

LAST Coorie Hazard Merino Journey Jacket

Absolutely love it!

Banner Scarf
Tyler Fradet (Portland, US)
Banner scarf ❤️

I recently was watching a program called “Men in kilts” while Sam & Graham wondered around Scotland they stopped at a wonderful business that is making tartan on a antiquated machine. I was amazed at the beauty of the tartan, and was also inspired to do a little sleuthing online. I was so happy to find Prickly Thistle. After looking around their web store I decided to purchase the banner scarf for my wife’s upcoming birthday. A short while later it arrived. She absolutely loved it! This scarf looks like it was made specifically for Quinn. Thanks so much for your amazing ethos and style, we hope to visit soon. Thanks again, cheers!

Love it!

Love my new jumper, will get tons of wear out of it for years to come, but I always love everything about Prickly Thistle 🖤🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

LAST Highland Woolly Hats
Sophia (Hebden Bridge, GB)
Highland woolly hats

I purchased three hats as gifts. They’re so beautifully made and exquisitely packaged - as ever! Thanks to all at Prickly 😁

Give yourself some rocking elegance!

I have bought kilts from them before, but this one…the black elements maxi kilt is my absolute favorite. It makes me feel elegant, and yet bad ass enough to take on the world. Pretty amazing for just a piece of clothing!

Blanket Scarf X Limited Edition X Black Elements
JoAnn Tracey (Reisterstown, US)
Heirloom quality that will last a lifetime - and beyond!

Black Elements is a stunning tartan. The merino twill is tight, with an almost silky hand.

My first Black Elements purchase was the Maxi Kilt, and I loved the tartan so much that I quickly ordered the Blanket Scarf and the Slender Scarf in it as well.

Thank you, passionate rebels of Prickly Thistle! I applaud your mission to fill our closets with high quality, sustainable, and gorgeous, apparel. I am a most grateful customer! 💜

Rebel Gift E-Card
Karin Stegmann (Villingen-Schwenningen, DE)
Gift Card

Good idea to by a gift card. I gifted it to myself. It is like a piggy-bank for a Rebel garment. I know and love the fabric and colours because I bought several scarfs, each in a different weaving style.

❤️ proud to be a Tartan Rebel

Can’t wait to rock my amazing bad-ass maxi kilt at NYC Tartan Week this year! Always a fan of a raffle I’m hoping to win this Gift Card to acquire another one of a kind statement piece by Clare and her team! Rebel Proud @PricklyTartan #RebelClare

Maxi Kilt X Limited Edition X Black Elements
Christine Bahr (Lavallette, US)
Maxi Kilt Love Affair

I received my gorgeous Black Elements Maxi Kilt and I love it! This is my second Maxi Kilt. Now I have one to wear while the other is at the cleaners:) Although a kilt is a traditional clothing item, Prickly Thistle weaves beautiful patterns in the softest wool that is completely comfortable, stylish and unique. I get compliments galore. I absolutely love them both<3 Thank you Rebel Women of The Highlands!

It's a no-brainer.

I am so crazy about Prickly Thistle - it's ethos, the people who work there, it's sustainability, and especially the CLOTHES! Everytime I splurge on an item, there is another design beckoning me...
It only made sense after purchasing four or five items that I purchase the VIR membership. I want to support them and It's income that Prickly Thistle can count on every month from me. And one of these months I will have contributed enough to purchase the next fabulous design!! It's a no-brainer! What will they say in 200 years...

Mill Tour
Sylvie P (Palaiseau, FR)
Great Mill tour

I recommend ! Highly 😄 I came to visit the Mill in the beginning of November. I was motivated by learning more about the tartans and meet the team. I enjoyed this time there so much 🥰 the team is great ! They share their passion, their values and we can learn more about their work, the different processes to create a tartan, fascinating ! I truly saw a authentic factory and people motivated by strong values and much kindness. Thank you for the Mill tour 😊

Great workmanship and great style

Love! Love! Love! When I spotted the Dungarres on Claire while watching ‘Lost in Scotland’ I know that I got to have this piece in my wardrobe. I googled and thrilled to found that I can order direct.
I measured so many times before I placed my order just to make sure that I did not get the size wrong. Thanks to the video instructions and assistance from kind staff I could measure myself correctly.

The design and workmanship are impressive. I could never imagine that a traditional Scottish wardrobe can be transformed into fun and interesting fashionable items. And love the idea of sustainability in fashion. Please keep up the good work. You have my continuous support.
