Most people around the world have heard of Scotland. Most people have heard of some of the things that Scotland produces, like whisky and tartan. But as you'd expect, Scotland is more than products that are traditionally associated with us, such as whisky and tartan.
In my work as a retailer in Scotland's tourist industry, I actively sought out products that were Scottish, but which didn't rely on traditional images to mark them as such. And what wonderful products they are.
There are soaps and toiletries from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides, handmade organic soaps and creams from Edinburgh, brilliant real slate cheesboards, coasters and other tableware from Fife, ceramics from Perthshire, cushions and little wooden ornaments from East Lothian and, yes, beautiful tartan cushions too.
But we're not just limiting our searches for fantastic products to Scotland, so we have wonderfully quirky button jewellery from Ireland, and lovely handmade jewellry from Northumberland. You can find all of those products scattered around various shops in Scotland if you look hard enough but at Daisy Cheynes we've done the searching for you and brought them all together at our shop in Edinburgh and on this website for you to browse and purchase, for yourself or for gifts for friends and family.
And if you're coming to visit our country, then drop us an email and we'll welcome you warmly in our shop. I hope that you enjoy browsing Daisy Cheynes and that you find a gift that you like or that you'd like to send to someone. I'd like to hear from you, so drop me a line, and tell me what you think.
