History: We know that the tradition of wearing a kilt pin was introduced during Queen Victoria's reign, this was to stop the kilt apron from opening and ensure the wearers modesty was hidden. The Queen gave her own brooch to a soldier who was having difficulty with his kilt during the wind.

Art Pewter Made In Scotland : Our journey began in 1968 in the heart of Bonnie Scotland. Founded by the late Hamish Dawson-Bowman, he embarked on a remarkable path to introduce a new sense of purpose and pride of achievement into the lives of disabled ex-servicemen, by reviving the ancient art of the Scottish silversmith which for so long had lain dormant.

Passed down from one generation to another, the secrets of our craft have been carefully preserved, ensuring that every product we offer carries the same charm and quality as we have been perfecting for over 50 years!
