The Longship is a fashion and lifestyle store in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. We are a family business and pride ourselves in supporting other independent designers and craftspeople – from Orkney and beyond.
Emma McDowall is a creative female entrepreneur, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. What started off as experimental fun in her parent’s shed, soon became a sellable product when Emma shared photos of her works on social media. The colour palettes and textures brought to everyday objects, such as clocks and trays, were welcomed with enthusiasm, and now her pieces are sold world-over, from Iceland to the US…and now in the Longship, Kirkwall!
