Inspired by the local landscape and Scotland’s unique artistic and cultural heritage, Araminta created our house tartan and tweed. She was born and raised in Aberdeenshire, on a small estate next to the River Dee. Her love of tweed and tartan can be traced back to her childhood, with her family tweed and tartan being worn for the everyday and on special occasions.
Araminta studied Fine Art Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University before setting up her eponymous studio in 2014.
Working in his distinctive ‘Cubistoid’ style, Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca has created a dramatic mural that envelopes the Clunie Dining Room, transforming the space into a theatrical ‘stage’. The forms and colours Kuitca selected for his immersive painting were heavily inspired by the ebb and flow of the Clunie River, directly outside the dining room, and the patchwork of colours and line of the surrounding hills and village rooftops. Details of this mural feature on an exclusive collection of scarves made in collaboration with Jane Carr.
