Something beautiful, everyday...

Hello! I'm Louise, and Tactile is my shop.

I sell beautiful, contemporary items for you and your home: lovely fabrics, delicate ceramics, art and photography, books and publications, lots of special yarns, French bath and home products, sheepskins from Skye, beautiful men’s shoes, lovingly-upholstered chairs, hats, shawls, quilts, throws, Turkish hamman cottons... and lots, lots more.

It's a very special space for people who like beautiful, tactile items and want to give them a loving home.

Brands include (and are added to regularly): Govan Originals, Eden Cottage Yarns, Merchant & Mills, Skye Skeins, Stef Francis, Willow Knits, Niki Jones, Rosy Green Wool, Jane Means Ribbons, The Fibre Company, Emma Williams Ceramics, Blacker yarns, Lothantique, Watercolours & Lace yarns, plus individual one-off pieces from makers, authors and artists.

All my stock begs to be touched; picked up; stroked; sniffed (that’s the leather shoes, mostly), weighed in the hand. Drop in when you're passing, and discover for yourself.  I’ll look forward to seeing you.
