Travel along a country road, a few miles beyond the small market town of Strathaven.

At first glance, you see a peaceful rural retreat amid the rolling hills and glens, but peek inside and you will find a compulsive creator, carefully crafting all kinds of handmade gifts.

Yes, that's me. I'm Nora Schivas, a life long designer and maker, committed to breathing new life into the old traditions , adding a modern twist to the much loved tweeds and tartans. I use only the highest quality materials... Harris Tweed handwoven in the Outer Hebrides, tartans from the best Scottish weavers and soft grained leathers.


I have to say that my most popular products are hip flasks . These are very much in demand for Best Man, Ushers, Father of the Bride and Groom, and with a huge selection of tweeds and tartans available, along with various personalisation options, you will be spoiled for choice. Ever popular at Scottish weddings, they have also graced many a celebration all over the world, from Finland to South Africa, Alaska to Australia, and everywhere in between. Grateful Grooms can confidently order their unique groomsmen's gifts knowing they will be appreciated by all, from Best Man to Grandfather of the Bride.


Everything is made by hand, by myself, to exacting standards with attention to detail. Why buy mass- produced gifts when you can have the perfect present made to your own specification? All made relaxed environment, using ethically sourced materials where possible, with personal attention and service, just as deserved by the most discerning buyer. I have arguably the largest range of tweed and tartan flasks available.  I enjoy producing custom orders for your most important days, and assure personal attention and speedy service ay all times.


Custom orders are always welcome.. If you are looking for ideas, you will find a gallery with some of my completed custom orders here.


And for added reassurance, see my many reviews from happy customers.
