White Stuff’s in-house design team transform hand-drawn prints and intricate design ideas into vibrant seasonal collections using high quality, ethically sourced materials. Charitable aims sit at the heart of the company with their White Stuff Foundation supporting more than 85 small charities in the UK and they donate at least 1% of their annual profit each year.

Craft Scotland is delighted to collaborate with White Stuff on the Summer Show. We believe that craft is an essential part of our cultural, economic and social life and we regularly work with other like-minded agencies to achieve this goal. Both Craft Scotland and White Stuff are committed to promoting quality design.


The Summer Show is held on the second floor of White Stuff which is not accessible to wheelchair users or those who may experience difficulties climbing stairs. A lift is available to the first floor and then a flight of stairs takes visitors to the Summer Show.
