A wee bit of History
Linda, the mind and hands behind Broadford Crafts, has always been “a bit crafty”.
In the beginning, Linda launched and ran a successful designer knitwear business creating made to measure garments for individual clients, soon what had been a hobby took over, and the ceramic giftware production company was created.
A few years later, the opportunity to buy the gift shop and post office in Broadford arose, and the perfect combination of creating and selling the crafts seem to good to pass up. Unfortunately being a victim of its own succes, the business paperwork took up so much time she didn’t have time to craft.
After her children were born she decided to make the bold move to lease the property giving her the time to return to the creative side of her nature. Launching her knitwear range at the Scottish Trade Fair at the Glasgow SECC in January 2019.
The simple stylish take on traditional classic garments was very well received by both Scottish based companies and international buyers as something “ fresh and different”.
Natural Knitwear from the Isle of Skye
Each knitted garment is handmade on the Isle of Skye. The knitwear is made from fine Shetland Wool producing a lightweight warm fabric for an easy to wear stylish finish.
