International Roundtable



Scotland is home to many creative talents across disciplines from applied arts to manufacturing and links with Europe and the world through its heritage, knowledge exchange, creativity, making skills, quality and innovation.


Linen and the flax plant from which it derives, represent a focus for these links through the strong bonds of shared design and material cultures.
