About The Croft House

WHAT is The Croft House?

The Croft House collection of high quality Scottish knitwear, accessories and gifts is exclusively available through our website and pop-up shops. 

From our base in rural Aberdeenshire in the North East of Scotland, we design our range to reflect our love for luxurious, natural fibres and fabrics steeped in the heritage and colours of Scotland. 

 

Established in late 2012, the company ethos has always been......

  1. Fantastic quality products – we use natural, locally sourced materials. Our cashmere is milled in Scotland and our wool is spun in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK.
  2. High manufacturing ethics - The Croft House branded products are MADE IN SCOTLAND.
  3. Low carbon footprint – with sourcing materials and manufacturing locally there is no need to ship items half way around the world.
  4. Low environmental impact – we use only recyclable or biodegradable packaging in order to deliver your items ensuring we minimise our environmental impact.
  5. Good causes – every time you make a purchase by credit or debit card at thecrofthouse.com you will actively contribute to charity. Using our credit/debit card payment system contributes to the charity "Epilepsy Scotland".

 

WHERE is The Croft House?

Not many people have a ruined castle at the end of the garden!  We are lucky to have a castle dating from 1660 to look out at which is said to have been visited by James Francis Edward Stuart (King James VIII) "The Old Pretender" in 1715 when he returned to Scotland from exile to reclaim the Scottish throne.  It is also said to have been the place where William Burnes (1721-84), the father of poet Robert (Robbie) Burns, trained as a gardener before moving to Ayrshire.

Snaked around by the River Ugie, we are only 2 miles from the sea and the oldest Salmon smoke house in Scotland, dating from 1585.

Our registered company address, number and VAT details can be found at the end of our Terms and Conditions page.

 

WHO is The Croft House?

I'm Louise, the founder and owner of The Croft House.  My combined loves of design, history and vintage fashion inspired me to start my own business.  I love using all these influences to design my contemporary pieces of knitwear and particularly enjoy using fair isle patterns in my designs.  Look out for my "designers notes" to see what has inspired the pattern or colours of each piece on the product pages.
