Meet the Tartan Rebel Team

Supportive, multi-generational and completely bonkers... our team is a wee family of artisan rebels local to the Highlands, working every day to continue the tartan story!
And have a blooming good laugh in the process

Clare
Our founder, she's a driving force fighting for integrity every day. In her eyes she is a camel... a lover of the heat, can sometimes not eat for months, can carry so much on her strong shoulders... and once her father was offered 1000 camels for her as a child because of her white hair!

 Martin

He's been an maker in the Scottish/Northern Irish textile industry for almost 60 years. He's a true expert, humble... and the biggest joker of the pack! Like a sloth, he gives the impression of being a bit slower, but is actually like lightening on his feet!

Sandie
A natural creative who can turn her hand to all areas of textiles, and is regularly heard around the mill saying "That's smashing!". She is the team's honest beaver - artistic, practical and well-organised!
.

.
Thereza
Always brightening the mill with her bubbly energy, she's got a laugh that can be heard all across the Black Isle! Thereza thinks of herself as a monkey because of her fun, cheeky personality... and her strong values for family!

Ross 
He's been working with mechanics and machines his whole life... and it shows through his impeccable skill. Ross is our early morning artisan who can be found maintaining the looms with love, fixing all kinds of stuff and taking the piss out of everyone! His physical strength makes him the bear of our pack... but at the same time he's a great big softie

Mary
She's vibrant, edgy and a complete whizz in the sewing room with her incredible dressmaking skills. She'll fearlessly try her hand at anything! Can be found sunbathing at lunchtime, zooming up Fyrish hill at lightening speed and modelling Prickly products. Mary describes herself as a monkey - likes to play, always curious as to what's going on elsewhere... and loves a bit of mischief!
.
.
.
Fiona
Another whizz behind the sewing machine and anything that requires tenacity! She's the bi-lingual queen of our family, with a passion for the history of the Highlands. Can be found sporting vibrant outfits and having juicy conversations.  Fiona loves the long respected history of the Scottish wolf,
an animal of independent beauty!
.

Jenny
Our office whizz who is forever shocked when she looks at the clock "Gosh is that the time already!?". She's thoughtful and caring with an incredible memory, and loves a good laugh. Jenny is our owl - a lover of night time and hates an early morning, she feels she's wise but also a bit of a twit-too!
.

.
Eleanor
Our social rebel, she's always looking for a story to tell by diving into Scottish history and engaging with the discourse of today's world too. She can be found around the mill typing away on her laptop and eating tomato soup at lunchtime. She sees herself as an octopus - eclectic, free-flowing & decorative... and doing multiple things at once!

More to come!
