We created brand guidelines and a bespoke illustration for the guys at The Orry Mill, a Wool Yarn and Haberdashery shop in Eaglesham.
The Orry Mill is an independent contemporary yarn shop located in Eaglesham on the Southside of Glasgow They run regular classes and workshops for crafters. The name ‘The Orry Mill’ refers to the open space in Eaglesham known as ‘The Orry’ (Old Scots for ‘area’) in which there are the remains of a cotton mill. The mill and the village were designed by Lord Alexander Eglinton, but built by his brother Archibald. The Eglinton family were responsible for a series of cotton mills and key agricultural developments throughout the late 18th and early 19th Century. The area of Busby, Eaglesham, Clarkston and Newton Mearns as small villages all had water powered cotton mills, and this drove the development of these villages, the buildings, geography and layout as we see it now.
