A Scottish boy meets a Canadian girl...
A chance meeting at a St Patrick’s Day Ball, the boy steals a dance with the girl! Was it the kilt that caught her eye, or her Canadian lilt that turned his head? Who knows, but that night a new & exciting chapter begins. Romantic tales of Edinburgh sparks the girl’s sense of adventure; together they head home. There, the girl dreams about a brand that reflects all that’s great about Scotland, nothing old-fashioned or frumpy, but something that’s colourful and uniquely Scottish.
Ness is born, and the rest is history.
Ness is a creative and colourful lifestyle brand, bursting with individual, iconic style; taking inspiration from Scotland and delivering Scottish heritage into the present day, through colour and design.
