Lesley MacMakes – Designer & Maker
LesleyMacMakes is a creative workspace and retail outlet on Comrie High Street (Drummond Street).
I come from a family of textile designers and have been designing and making my own products for others to enjoy for over ten years. I previously worked under the name of “Fresh and Vintage Designs” in Blairgowrie where I ran a successful shop and teaching space for many years. My new name is a nod to my grandfather who was never seen without a tape measure!
Since relocating to Comrie I have been working away in my garden studio creating bespoke designs to order….but have now decided to bring my business back to life amongst the other creative folk in Comrie.
Working primarily with Harris Tweed and Scottish Linen my designs can be both contemporary or traditional depending on the pattern or design of the fabric I am working with.
