One of the best hideaways from the bustle of the Edinburgh International Festival in August is the annual Craft Scotland Summer Show. An exhibition of contemporary homeware, jewellery and textiles, it really showcases the design-led talent existing in Scotland right now. Of course, that means it features some of our favourite makers, so we're ready to shout about it. We were invited along to the private view, and to join in on one of the hands-on maker-led workshops, so we've definitely had a good look around. The exhibition is beautifully curated and the space on floor 2 of White Space is really used to its best. It was hard to pick a top 5 but we've whittled it down to a mix of personal old faves and new treasures:

1.) Studio Emma
The mix of colours on these concrete planters, pots and vessels is just plain delicious. Neither of us are especially plant people but these are pretty enough to display on their own. The rugged edges contrast beautifully with the candy shades and the mix of shapes and sizes means there's one for any spot or shelf space.

2.) Collingwood-Norris
It doesn't feel like we should be thinking of knitwear just yet but it's hard not to with this kind of luxury Scottish design filling our eyeballs. Woolies might seem a strange choice for a Summer Show but the colours of these are very inkeeping with sunnier seasons. Plus, this is Scotland after all, we have to be prepared for all eventualities!

3.) Evgeniia Balashova
There's such a refreshing feel of movement to Evgeniia's pieces that's hard to achieve with a technique like 3D printing. There's something about them that begs to be touched and the colours are just so soft and delicate. It's great to see makers embracing new technology and really making it work beautifully and seamlessly.

4.) Helen Ruth
Yes, we're still not over out love for illustrated scarves and our addiction has most certainly been fuelled by these beauties. Helen Ruth's intricate designs are full of fun subtleties and each tells it's own story. We are so in love with her latest collection, just look at that fly detail!

5.) Rebecca Wilson
We both fell hard for Rebecca Wilson's bold and usual jewellery and objects. Another collection that looked good enough to eat, we loved the mix of huge statement pieces and more wearable items. Those shades and sprinkle patterns are just to die for.


If you'd like to catch the Craft Scotland Summer Show you will have to be quick- it closes this Sunday 27th August! You can find the opening hours here.
