Helen has an outstanding ability in Customer Service and an excellent eye for detail. She has a passion for what she does and takes great pride in her work.

jude burns

Helen’s eldest grandson Jude is here to help out as well as learn everything there is to know about the Highland Wear industry. He was one of our models for our first photo shoot and liked it a whole lot more than he thought he would. Jude has a keen interest in photography and videography, he loves the opportunity to get out and about with his camera.

“Erm that wasn't me by the way!”
