Misneach (pronounced mish-noch) is Gaelic for courage. It’s taken a lot of courage (for so many reasons) to begin this venture. I live in North Glengarry, Ontario, Canada, which has Scottish roots, back to the Highland Clearances (and is also home to the North American Pipe Band Championships). I also have Scottish ancestors (as well as English, Irish and German). Misneach, then, is a fitting name. I am a lapsed lawyer who’s decided to explore her creative side. I have always loved clothing and accessories. I've combined that with my fascination with all things Celtic, and have produced something very special.
My Celtic inspired creations are all handmade, one at a time, by me at my home studio just outside of Maxville, Ontario. I’ve sourced tweeds and tartans directly from Scotland and combined those fabrics with canvas, leather and the finest quilting cottons to craft charming pieces. I hope you will love them as much as I do.
