ANTA, made in Scotland


A few weeks ago I discovered the website of ANTA, a Scottish company involved in interior design and architecture. Suppliers of collections of carpets and rugs, throws, blankets and woven fabrics, stoneware, lighting, furniture,…

Everything from ANTA is made in Scotland. The woolen yarn used for the carpets and tweeds is sourced in the Western Isles and is woven in the Borders. The oak furniture is made in the Highlands and some of the wood is homegrown.

ANTA Stoneware was first developed when Annie Stewart began experimenting with painting tartan on ceramics 28 years ago.  Since then ANTA has become synonymous with the best in contemporary Scottish design.  The ceramics are made with love in our Highland factory and individually decorated by hand.

ANTA now 25 years in the same hands, is a partnership between designers Annie and Lachlan Stewart and the craftsmen and women with whom they work. (Text website ANTA)
