Monumental efforts were made last year to ensure that while our visitors couldn’t come, they could still secure a piece of Orkney, all from the comfort of their own home. We can’t wait to see you back browsing in our local shops and businesses at the earliest opportunity, but in the meantime, Orkney products are more accessible online than ever before.

Now that things are hopefully returning to something closer to normality, our food, drink and creative producers are looking forward to welcoming you in their shops and workshops, but they’re also keeping a strong online presence, adding more and more options to their mail order availability. 

For fashion followers, or those with an eye for a unique piece of jewellery, Orkney is renowned for creatives of all kinds, and is home to a wealth of designers, some long-established, and others emerging. Colours, textures and patterns woven into the rich tapestry of the islands prove great inspiration for those behind Orkney’s catalogue of fantastic local fashion and jewellery brands.

Knitwear and textiles are big business here, and modern techniques using bold print and design are further cementing Orkney’s place on the map in the fashion world.

In turn, stylish boutique shops in the county aim to bring the latest designer brands and fashions to Orkney, ensuring a wide range of styles for all.

It’s easier than ever to stay in touch with all these amazing local businesses, and to enjoy the best of Orkney, either after you’ve gone back home, or before you’re able to get here in person.
