Jacobite Heroine is an independent e-commerce company based in the beautiful countryside of Moray, in the North East of Scotland. All products are designed and manufactured in Scotland using eco-friendly and up cycled fabrics.
Founder and managing director Laura Hart was born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, a childhood that was surrounded by beautiful beaches and rugged coastlines which instilled an appreciation for nature and the environment.
After completing qualifications in Costume and Fashion Technology, the majority of Laura's work experience revolved around the fashion and production sectors. Her love of history and nostalgia will often be reflected in her designs.
The story of Flora MacDonald and how she helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape after his defeat at Culloden is an inspiring and timeless story.
When reading about the story, Laura noticed one phrase describing her kept standing out; Jacobite Heroine. The company draws inspiration from Scotland so it seemed fitting to use a name that embodied her spirit.
