Inside the atelier

On the outskirts of Edinburgh sits the Araminta Campbell atelier.

Here you can find our weaving workshop, complete with vintage floor looms, our design offices and a showroom where we display our collections and offer private shopping consultations. Our small team of makers work in the atelier, sharing our passion for Scottish textiles and helping to keep our weaving heritage alive.

Araminta Campbell Atelier

Crafted with Care

Our SIGNATURE Collection is all handwoven with British alpaca here in our Edinburgh atelier.

Handweaving takes precision and patience, with each warp prepared by hand and meticulously threaded through the shafts of the loom.

Each piece is one-of-a-kind and can take between three days and three weeks to create. Every scarf, shawl, wrap and throw is woven individually, and given our signature hand stitched tassels while on the loom.

Once weaving is complete there is a lengthy finishing process involving washing, streaming, stitching and brushing – all by hand. This is how the beautifully soft handle and elegant drape is achieved.

It has taken years for our weavers to attain the skill and knowledge required to create our handwoven items, and we are proud to be helping to sustain the craft of handweaving here in Scotland.

Meet the Handweaving Team

Araminta

Founder and Creative Director

As well as leading the business, Araminta designs all of our Signature and Minta collections and works directly with our custom design clients to create their unique tweeds and tartans.

Corine

Head of Handweaving

Nurturing her creativity from a young age, Corine’s passion for weaving was ignited from the moment she laid her hands on a loom during her fashion and textile degree. Finding great satisfaction in the technicalities of weaving, she is passionate about traceability and the journey from raw material to finished piece.

Amelie

Handweaver

Amelie is one of the youngest members of our handweaving team. She has enjoyed honing her handweaving skills on the vintage looms and also learning more about alpaca fibre and fleece qualities. Amelie is passionate about sustainability and keeping ancient crafts alive and takes great delight in seeing the amazement on private shoppers faces when they witness the handweaving first hand and take home their very own handwoven piece.

Helen

Handweaver

As an advocate for sustainability and ethical production, hand weaving appealed to Helen as the embodiment of slow, responsible craft. She fell in love with the challenging yet meditative weave process and never tires of seeing a piece come to life on the loom, pick by pick.
