Velvet Thistle Home is small business making and selecting beautiful items for the home.  Velvet Thistle was an idea created (at the kitchen table) to allow me the freedom to work from home while raising my three young children.  Holidays to the Outer Hebrides, a collection of tweed and a sewing machine led me to start making cushions.  These were all sold quickly and I started selling at trade fairs and online.  I now take bespoke orders online.  If you see something that you like but would like it a different size or shape please do not hesitate to ask if this is possible.  I choose fabrics that are of the highest quality and handmade objects are made by me; this is reflected in the price.  I am now sourcing some items to sell that I think will compliment my own handmade collection.
