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 and combining that with my fascination with all things Celtic has produced something special.
My Celtic inspired creations are all handmade, one at a time, by me. I’ve sourced tweeds and tartans from directly from Scotland and combined those fabrics with canvas, leather and the finest quilting cottons to craft charming pieces. Add to that the block prints, designed and cut by hand by my partner, and you’ve got delightful works with a touch of whimsy. I hope you will love them as much as I do.
I’m also happy to discuss custom orders, using fabrics to your specifications. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s chat!
