Founded in 2003 in Scotland, the Samantha Holmes label is one the longest established lifestyle alpaca clothing brands in the UK.
The company is still owned and run by Samantha Holmes from her home on the west coast of Scotland. Originally an Art and Languages graduate from Edinburgh University, Samantha found her first inspiration for luxury fabrics and traditional craftsmanship in Nepal from where she imported cashmere from a small hand weaving cooperative. But it was on discovering alpaca, that she found her niche. Samantha travelled to Peru to make contact with small producer groups, most of whom she still works with now and together they continue to produce an exclusive collections of handcrafted luxury gifts, fashion accessories, Alpaca babywear, Alpaca clothing and Alpaca home ware, using only the finest micron baby alpaca wool.
We love the relaxed, effortless style of Samantha Holmes’ designs. The natural, cosy feel encapsulates country style. Just beautiful.
