Black Cherry

Established in 2012 by Maxine Dickson and Jemma Wood, Black Cherry is a result of combining our love of textiles, design talent and years of industry experience.
We are a textile print studio who create a range of exclusive bold and beautiful print designs.
We lovingly design each range taking inspiration from current catwalks and street styles to create a unique collection of printed patterns.

Lisa Crockard Jewellery makes contemporary, handmade & 3d printed jewellery, right here in Paisley. Using a combination of traditional hand-making techniques with CAD, Lisa likes to explore contrasts throughout her work and creates both one-off pieces and small batch collections. Working in precious metals, with semi-precious stones and non-precious materials, Lisa is drawn to architecture, man-made objects & geometric forms as her inspiration.

As a nod to the world renowned & much loved pattern that is at the heart of Paisley’s heritage, Paisley Pins have combined their existing skills sets from years of working in the graphics industry with new techniques they have learned over the past year to produce a range of Paisley Pattern pins and brooches. Using materials such as anodised aluminium, laser cut acrylic & silver, they have combined technology with traditional pattern to give it a contemporary twist.

Our collection features animals. birds and plants which are hand drawn, cut from felt and embroidered onto the Harris Tweed.
