It’s our Happy Birthday

This month Papa Stour celebrates its seventh birthday. It was founded in 2005 by stylist and designer Rosie Brown when she moved home to Scotland, after years of Interiors styling in London and rediscovered her love of Printed Textiles. Rosie had studied Printed Textiles at Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee, and followed that with an MA at Glasgow School of Art.

Rosie produced a collection of hand printed Harris Tweed products and set up Papa Stour with artists and makers, many of whom remain on our fabulous team of Artists and Makers to this day.

Papa Stour is an online showcase of Scotland’s most interesting contemporary craft, design and creativity, focussed on promoting Scottish craft and design and bringing it to an international audience.

We will celebrate by adding many new artists and work to the Papa Stour.
