The Story of Sleekit


 

CHAPTER 1 - ETHICAL 

We are on a mission to create ethical and sustainable artfully flattering 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 fabric 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. 

CHAPTER 2 - WHAT WE STAND FOR 

Equality for all!

Everyone has the right to feel empowered!

Never be stopped, never be quiet, be powerful and magical! 

CHAPTER 3 - 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', all things I believe are quite magical and ever changing. 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 played with digitally and then printed onto our beautiful faux silk fabric. 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'.
