SOMETHING SPECIAL FROM THEIR HOME FOR YOU AND YOUR HOME
Contemporary textiles business Hume Sweet Hume creates an exclusive range of beautiful knitted cushions, clothing and accessories, inspired by the pristine environment of the remote island of Westray.
Formed in 1998, the company represents the vision of sisters and art school graduates, Lizza and Jenna Hume, who shared a determination to build a successful enterprise in their island birthplace and home.
Combining Lizza’s textile design expertise with Jenna’s fine art background, the Hume Sweet Hume range is innovative and functional. Strongly influenced by the colours and textures of the Westray landscape, but always on trend, the firm’s collection of jackets, ponchos, jumpers and accessories reflect the sisters’ desire to push the boundaries of knitting and create pieces that can be worn in a variety of different ways enabling the customer to create their own unique style.
All of Hume Sweet Hume’s products are handmade locally with the highest quality natural fibres of Silk, Geelong Lambswool and Angorra.
Since launching the company, which is based in a former chip shop in Pierowall Village, Lizza and Jenna have seen a steady increase in demand for their work. In addition to sales from their shop in Westray and website, Hume Sweet Hume supplies a growing number of outlets in Orkney, mainland Scotland and further afield, including the new addition of their very own shop in Kirkwall.
