Scotland has a rich, diverse and internationally respected design and manufacturing industry. Many of the individuals and brands that make up this tradition have dedicated their lives to mastering their profession, which is why Scottish products are enjoyed all over the world. Their skill and quality stays true to the heritage from which it comes and exists uncompromised in a global society increasingly defined by its fleeting fashion trends and emphasis on profit over artisanal pedigree.
We call these men and women Vanguards.
Vanguards is a print magazine exploring and celebrating Scotland’s rich and diverse design and manufacturing tradition.
We provide featured brands with in-depth pieces on their processes and quality products alongside a developing critical voice against unsustainable and unethical manufacturing.
