Welcome to a bold idea

Stores that sell exquisitely designed products by artists living in Scotland and where every penny spent by our customers goes directly to those who create. Scottish Design Exchange exists to delight customers, reward artists and boost the local economy.

That’s why we consistently buck the retail trend.

See for yourself at one of our unique stores in Edinburgh and Glasgow or go to our rapidly expanding online shop.

TESTIMONIALS

“… Scotland has a wealth of creative talent … but with no shop window for their products and services, because they can’t afford high street rents and don’t have massive marketing budgets. This model solves both problems at once.”

The Herald. 26 Jan 2019

“If you can’t beat the high street, rethink it … turn the model on its head and create a model where the artists and designers get the lion’s share of the profit.”
