13threads creates individual clothing by mixing the old with the new to produce something a little bit different and special. Many pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited editions and are all designed, cut and stitched by me, Lois, in my room with a beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle.

I am as interested in the inside of my designs as I am on how they look on the outside so where appropriate I French Seam, serge and/or finish seams with bias tape. I like to use Scottish wools such as Harris TweedLiberty of London fabrics and linens and silks.

As the model and photographer for 13threads I try to show the fabrics, shape and colours as accurately as possible, however, depending on your monitor, colours may vary. I try to give as much relevant detail as I can in my product descriptions.

And, because I know you will want to know, the beautiful jewellery shown in the photos is from The Jewelry Story and most of the shoes and boots worn are Dr Martens.

If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like one of my designs in a different size or colour then please email me at info@13threads.com
