Welcome to Island Nation

 Island Nation is a Scottish design studio that creates unique design-led fashion and accessories for the conscious buyer. Our luxury collections celebrate the rugged landscapes of the Scottish Highlands through our unique design aesthetic.

 Founded by Glasgow School of Art graduate Kirsty Lamont, Island Nation is a sustainable brand known for thoughtful craftsmanship and artistry.  Kirsty combines her academic background with her Hebridean heritage to create evocative pieces that are rich in imagery. Kirsty’s island roots, and love of the intriguing patterns found in nature are evident in much of her work.

 We use only 100% Scottish lamb’s wool, which is renowned the world over its soft, luxurious feel: thought to be the best for next-to-skin comfort. Our make to order, and small batch production strategy helps keep our original colourways fresh and topical. Every product has been designed with quality, durability and style in mind.​
