Thistle & Broom and Scotland
In 2004 I conceived of creating a new business model for bespoke luxury. Merging the ethos of Nobel Laureate Dr. Muhammad Yunus with the preservation of traditional skills, "Fair Trade on steroids", EFT payments, Web 2.0, and telling stories unique to Scotland through these exquisite products. Seeking them out provides me with ample opportunity to capture stunning images of Scotland's beauty. Support Scottish heritage and impact her often rural economies by shopping with Thistle & Broom. Enjoy.
