CONTEMPORARY Scottish lifestyle label Tìr-Dhàimh takes inspiration from the scenic beauty of Scotland.

The label was founded by Scottish designer Rachel Devine, a graduate in fashion design from Glasgow’s Cardonald College and later London College of Fashion.

Over the past 15 years, Devine has built up an impressive portfolio of industry experience. She established herself designing for a mixture of high-end and high street stores including big names such as Ted Baker, Jaeger, Coast and River Island.

Tìr-Dhàimh, pronounced teer-dahyv, is the Gaelic for “homeland” and acts as a symbol of Devine’s relocation back to Scotland. The Scottish designer sought to escape London for a more rural existence where she could reconnect with the beauty Scotland has to offer.

The label offers a range of homewares and fashion accessories which feature details inspired by Scotland. Scottish culture, wildlife and landscapes have always inspired Devine, and she continues to channel this through her brand.

Tìr-Dhàimh’s focus is to produce candles and scarves which create a sense of everyday luxury.

The National:

Embracing the brand’s focus, products feature traditional emblems which have been revisited and distilled into modern prints, designs, scents and fabrics. In true Devine style, she continues to add her own perspective to traditional themes and motifs to create products which stand out from the crowd.

The label’s signature design technique is particularly prominent in the scarf collection. Each scarf distinguishes itself with unique impressions of Scotland which are translated on to carefully selected silk/modal using digital printing methods. The designs are complemented by the lightweight, indulgently warm and soft qualities which come from using silk material.

Tìr-Dhàimh candles offer a range of beautiful signature scents. Each candle is uniquely blended to evoke a sense of Scotland, with inspirations behind scents ranging from wild sea and landscapes to deep indigo twilights and nostalgic home comforts.

The National:

To create the candles, Devine uses only the finest ingredients and highest quality wax which are hand-poured into their glass containers; this helps ensure a long and even burn. Selected scents are also available for use in a room diffuser.

Discussing what’s to come for Tìr-Dhàimh, Devine says: “We’re looking forward to the new AW17 prints coming out and excited about extending the product range into leather bags and some more home accessories. It’s really invigorating to be back home in Scotland and immersing myself in the thriving creative community.”
