Beth Renton the creator of Wee Beauties studied Textile design at Heriot Watt University in the Scottish Borders, an area with a rich textile heritage. After graduating and moving back to her home town of Edinburgh she decided to set up my business Wee Beauties.
Wee Beauties specialises in making beautiful, high quality, machine knitted accessories.
Beth has a passion for nature and travel and these are reflected in her desigsn. She has always loved bright colours and a student exchange trip to India further influenced her and let her see the benefit of travel for inspiration. Some of Wee Beauties patterns come from everyday life in Scotland and pattern inspiration can also be found in plants and places.
Reducing waste and being a sustainable business matters greatly to Wee Beauties
The raw material is merino lambswool which is produced in Yorkshire and then shipped to Scotland where it is knitted into the products, this means when you buy from me you are supporting the British economy and a business with a low carbon footprint. Wee Beauties will continue to seek out ways to reduce waste. Wool is any precious so scraps are used to make smaller items like badges and earrings.
