Ladybird Embroidery by Katy

Our new collection incorporates handstitched ladybirds from Katy. Bringing you some luck and love in these specially customised pieces.

Katy (of Hoop&Bone) is a self taught embroidery artist who lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Her embroidery pieces are individually designed from sketches and hand stitched onto a variety of materials, from silk and velvet to linen. Katy took up embroidery just over five years ago by total chance, and has become seriously addicted since. Using a technique called thread painting Katy tends to stitch as she would paint or draw, so no two pieces are ever the same.  Her passion for sustainability within the fashion industry and desire to play a role in reducing textile waste has influenced a small latest collection of hand embroidered clothing.

Each ladybird is £25 and can be added to your garment, just drop us a line and we can make your ladybird dreams come true! See some action shots below.

The Isle of Harris Distillery Jackets

Delighted to introduce our new range of Harris Tweed jackets in collaboration with The Isle of Harris Distillery!


Judy first began to use Harris Tweed when her grandmother, a native to the Islands brought the designer back a suitcase full of vibrant tweeds on the boat which had been woven by her Uncle Donald, a weaver on the island. The designer brings an avant-garde twist to the cloth creating contemporary wears in her unique collections

For this exclusive project Judy has been working with Alison Macleod of Tiger Textiles in the Isle of Lewis. Alison has been working from her studio embroidering threads of rose gold on to sumptuous teal velvet for the hidden message in the back collars of the new Isle of Harris Distillery jackets.

Working in close collaboration we have created two new jackets with the unique cloth. Both the women’s and men’s styles have beautiful details including copper buttons, contrasting stitching and an embroidered collar.




Ahead of releasing this design to a wider audience in 2021, we are offering customers in Scotland a chance to own a special personal, made-to-measure version of their own.

These are limited in availability and at the moment only available to people able to attend a consultation in Glasgow or Edinburgh in Scotland within the next five weeks.

Fitting sessions are limited and can be arranged by emailing iona@harrisdistillery.com

Visit The Distillery Harris Tweed Jacket for all the details!
