Spotlight on Independents: Settlers Stores
“All of the clothes you see here in the shop are designed in house and made in small workshops in Britain, our tweed is bespoke- woven in a mill in the Scottish borders by 200 year old machines”
Nathalie and Zara make clothing for life on the road. Versatile and robust fashion that can be worn to festivals, on the high street on safari. They have both spent long periods of time in East Africa and this has inspired their unique designs. The bright Dutch Wax cotton is an invigorating contrast to the earthy tones of the tweed.
“We love tweed because its comfortable to work in, sustainable, it breathes, and it is completely English. Tweed is somewhat socially coded, we want to make it accessible to people who wouldn’t normally wear it.” They also have a wide range of accessories, hats, soft furnishings, and typically practical items like leather bound travel flasks.
