Araminta Campbell designed The Fife Arms tartan and tweed which has been used in interiors, uniforms and accessories throughout the hotel. Recently named ‘Scotland’s hottest hotel’, the reopening of The Fife Arms has been an international success and we are proud to have played a part in such a prestigious project.

For the launch of new floating hotel Fingal Edinburgh, Araminta Campbell created custom bedrunners and cushions to use in the luxurious cabins. The bespoke design was a contemporary take on a tartan, using the hotel’s previous life as a lighthouse service ship as inspiration.
Glen Tanar Tweed Re-design
‘From the very first meeting, working with Araminta was an enjoyable and creative process. She listened attentively to us, and then taking inspiration from the landscape around us and referring to samples of existing tweed, Araminta designed new tweed for Glen Tanar that is contemporary and fresh. We are all delighted with it and have received very positive comments from staff and customers alike.’ Claire Bruce, Glen Tanar Estate
‘We were very pleased with the tweed Araminta designed and made up for the Ditchingham Estate. Her attention to detail was impressive. The first process was to listen to what we had in mind re style and colour and then come up with a choice of designs suitable for our use. This attention to detail was well rewarded and, not only was the design what we wanted, but also the make-up of the fabric, e.g. weight, was exactly what we needed. We found the whole process to be both interesting and rewarding.’ Robert Ferrers, Ditchingham Estate
Luton Hoo Tweed
Wyvern Tailoring Alpaca Tweed
Araminta worked closely with Edward Ebbern to create a tweed made entirely from undyed British alpaca. The suiting weight cloth was woven in Scotland and is now being crafted into bespoke suits by Wyverns tailors. “The result has been an absolutely beautiful cloth that is not only soft but reflects and uses light in a way that a dyed cloth could never achieve naturally.” Edward Ebbern of Wyvern Tailoring.
