At Velvet Boutique we pride ourselves on showcasing new, innovative and award-winning independent designers who happen to be Scottish. Our excellent range of products include: avant-garde and trend-inspired fashion, stunning accessories, beautiful contemporary jewellery and stylish home decor. We offer a range of in-stock items for fast delivery alongside our special made-to-order service, ensuring unique, quality products made by the designers. It’s an easy shopping experience from comfort of your home or when you cannot leave the office. Browse at your leisure, send a special gift or indulge and treat yourself!

We only bring you limited edition or one-off pieces, often hand-made by the designers. Buy supporting these small business, you are in turn supporting local makers and traditional Scottish industries. Whether re-working vintage materials, using traditional Scottish materials - Harris Tweed, lambswool, deer skin (by-product of the venison industry), making their products entirely by hand, printing their unique fabrics in the UK or sustaining fair-trade employment for indigenous workers, all Velvet Boutique designers are dedicated to their craft.

Velvet Boutique was founded by Jeda Pearl Lewis, who met other like-minded Scottish designers while setting up her own label Jeda Pearl. Jeda trained at the renowned Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, graduating with a First Class BDes Hons in Printed Textiles and Fashion. Following her work experience at Vivienne Westwood studios in London and after competing in the finals of international graduate fashion competitions at NIFT in Delhi, India and Mittelmode in Como, Italy, Jeda settled back in her hometown of Edinburgh to develop her business ideas. She now juggles motherhood with Velvet Boutique, working with numerous designers who are determined to live and work in bonny Scotland.

"While setting up I met so many talented Scottish designers and wanted to provide a supportive platform for them to showcase their exceptional work. Not only have I been able to turn my dream of an e-boutique into reality, but I've had the honour of working with exceptional designers on a wide range of different consultancy projects.

"Each product online is special as they are passionately created by the designers themselves, ensuring you receive unique, carefully crafted items by Scottish designers that are hard to come by, with some even being one-off pieces.”
