It’s been a busy few weeks here at Mandors. We’ve been working with Scotland Re:Designed on an amazing competition, and were lucky enough to host a pop up shop in the Lighthouse as part of the exhibition. It has been a fantastic opportunity for us to work alongside some of our customers. We asked you [...]
Hey guys, I thought it was about time that you got to see what some of the staff thought, rather than having to listen to me all the time!
Someone suggested that I do a wee staff member spotlight, and get them to show off their favourite fabrics. I’ve been inundated with volunteers, but Maggie Milne [...]

It’s been a while since I blogged, and it’s been a busy few months. February is the month for all of the trade shows that we go to. So I’ve been to such glamourous places as Paris, Birmingham, and Dunblane
I thought I’d share some of the new dress fabrics [...]
When people ask me what I miss about my time living in Scotland I always respond with the obvious, ‘the amazing people!’, ‘the scenery!’ and ‘the pubs!’ But there is another thing I really miss too…Mandors!
I spent two years living in Scotland and one of the hard things about leaving my little corner of the [...]
Last weekend, I made a special purchase in the Edinburgh branch of Mandors – 20m of green, yellow and red tartan ribbon…
I have now sent off the ribbon to a women’s co-operative called “Groupement Takku Liggey” in the rural village of Keur Momar Sarr, Senegal. Groupement will use the ribbon as part of their [...]
