Scottish Thistles

Exploring the hagged beauty of Scotland's National Flower

As the old saying goes, a picture can paint 1,000 words. But such is the passion and emotion stirred by the humble Scottish thistle, we’d better make that 5,000 words.

Do you know how the humble but not so dainty thistle come to be a worldwide emblem of Scotland? For full chapter, verse and infographic on 8 centuries of fascinating and thorny history,  click through to my Illustrated Story.

Inspired by this passion I return to this tireless topic and bring you my new updated and expanded Scottish Thistle collection: 10 individual product ranges all wrapped up in one seamless Gillian Kyle Collection.

Here you will find thistly things for everybody and every home too! From mugs and coasters to t-shirts and totes; a modern collection of beautiful, spiky Scottishness.

Our matching pair of earthenware mugs and set of 4 coasters in tonal shades of blue and purple will bring a Scottish hue to your kitchen or coffee table.

The co-ordinating placemats make for a beautifully stylish lunch or dinner setting.
