The Story of Sleekit By iain mac


 

ETHICAL 

We are on a mission to create ethical and sustainable products. Designer Iain Mac (BA HONS) creates printed textiles with bold and fun designs for lovely people. All of our designs are created in our studio in Scotland, all manufacturing is sourced in the UK and all of our fabric is GOTS certified, meaning the fabric can be traced and has been independently tested to ensure every part of production is sustainable and environmentally friendly. 

WHAT SLEEKIT STANDS FOR 

Equality for all!

Everyone has the right to feel empowered!

Don't hold back, be bold and be artfully flattering!

Art & Soul! 

DESIGNER IAIN MAC EXPLAINS IT

 

'The brand has evolved over the years, ever since I began building the business after Art School, the brand name grew and changed with me as we both went on this journey. SLEEKIT actually means 'Artfully flattering' or 'smooth', 'sleek', 'sly or cunning' (for fun), all things I believe are ever changing in meaning. It is also a Scottish word which I find playful and fun. All my designs are hand painted, illustrated and afterwards the artwork for the scarves is worked on digitally and then printed. I love telling tales through textiles, or creating memories that tell a story illustratively. Each collection will always feature a narrative in one way or another'.
