We Love : Lake & Loch
Lake & Loch is an exciting lifestyle brand that curates carefully considered products for the consumer that show a strong link between Canada and Scotland. Owner and founder, Jennifer, set up the brand in 2017 and currently sells the popular ‘ma bit’ beanie hats that have a variety of different areas of Glasgow proudly placed on them – allowing consumers to show the love for their ‘bit’ of Glasgow!
The brand also hand pours natural wax candles that are scented with many inspirations from Canada and Scotland alike, and the scents are really like nothing we have ever smelt before – truly delicious. What makes these candles extra special is their double usage – each of Lake & Loch’s candles are poured into top quality enamel camping mugs so that when you’re flame burns low, you will be left with a wonderful mug rather than just another glass container that no-one ever really uses after. What can be better than that?! Oh, it might be that with every purchase of a Lake & Loch candle, the brand donates £1 to the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
Alongside the hats and candles, Lake & Loch also sells Peruvian alpaca blankets in a range of soft colours which are the perfect Autumn/Winter home accessory as the long evenings draw in with of course the Scottish weather getting much colder. Each blanket is produced in Peru by a small family run business and are finished by hand.
As another InCube business, Lake & Loch are currently stocked in a variety of shops including the InCube Shop on Gilmour Street in Paisley, Renfrewshire, but you can find a range of other stockists on the website or catch owner Jennifer at one of her many markets!
Our top favourites from Lake & Loch are:
1)The CABIN & CROFT Candle
Inspired by nights by the fire and scented with a smoked whisky fragrance, this is a candle scent that has never crossed our noses before – but wow! This is a must have for sure, the scent is incredible! Hand poured in Glasgow and using only the best fragrances and oils with a burn time of 40 hours.
2)The ARROWHEAD Blanket
Woven in an arrow head pattern using lime green and slate yarns, this blanket caught our eye for the contrasting colour quality between the lime and slate. Woven in Peru by a family business, this blanket is perfect for nights by the fire, even the campfire infact, and will add a splash of colour to your home for the current season.
