Selbrae House is an established, independent, family business who offers a wide range of quality products with their design and manufacture rooted in Scotland.
We started doing what we love back in 2006 as The Just Slate Company, initially with a small range of hand crafted slate place mats and coasters. Today, Selbrae House offers a wide range of brands and great homeware products that make unique presents for all occasions.
HAND CUT AND ENGRAVED IN SCOTLAND
The Just Slate Company is the foundation of the Selbrae House family. Credited with creating the concept of slate tableware, we believe our slate products are still the best; handcrafted in Scotland from the finest slate, foam backed to protect your surfaces, and finished with a food safe coating.
GROWN IN SCOTLAND. MADE IN SCOTLAND
Sustainably sourced Scottish Oak and Sycamore chopping boards, paddles, serving trays and accessories. All our oak and sycamore comes from environmentally sustainable sources in Scotland, ensuring the future of this beautiful Scottish resource for many more generations. What makes our Scottish Made products even more special is that each product has a wonderful design etched on them, from Scottish inspired stags, Highland cows and thistles to trendy country designs including hares, bees and pheasants.
The quality of our craftsmanship shines through and the products are a great idea for a gift.
THE LINEN TABLE:
WOVEN IN SCOTLAND
We have partnered with the last remaining linen mill in Scotland to create a range of sustainable linen homeware, woven using traditional techniques that have been in use on this site since 1825.
We're proud to keep this tradition alive with a collection that includes napkins, place mats, table runners and tea towels all featuring screen printed illustrations of British animals.
THE TASTE OF SUNSHINE
A wide range of handcrafted olive wood products that includes chopping boards/ carving boards, serving bowls and kitchen utensils. Handcrafted in the Mediterranean from sustainably sourced olive wood. Each item is carved out of a single piece of wood making them durable and unique, with no two pieces the same.
ISLE & IVY:
FUELLED BY SCOTTISH TALENT
Developing Scottish talent is very important to us, and with Isle & Ivy we provide an opportunity to enjoy fresh, contemporary design. Products and designs vary to showcase the talent we find. For example, our first Isle & Ivy collection features the work of Scottish textile designer Karen Dalby who studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and Somerset College of Arts. Her watercolour homeware designs capture the spirit of wildlife and the naturally occurring brights of the landscapes they live in.
COLOURFUL AND FUN SCOTTISH GIFTS
Gillian Kyle is a much-loved Scottish homeware brand which was established by Glasgow School of Art graduate – Gillian Kyle in 2006.
Gillian’s first and most famous range was her Tunnock’s Collection - which features striking hand drawn illustrations of Scotland’s most loved treats – the Tunnock’s teacake and wafer. Since then Gillian has also launched additional hand illustrated, Scottish inspired collections and in Dec 2015 we joined forces with Gillian to assist in bringing more product and more of her loved designs to market. Gillian Kyle’s unique designs feature on tea towels, aprons, mugs and more.
SCOTTISH WITH A WEE BIT HUMOUR
