D&C Supplies has bought the Couthie Brand

We have some exciting news.

Couthie Scottish Gifts is moving to a new home with D&C Supplies, a family run business based in Glasgow providing quality Scottish gifts and homewares to independent retailers around Scotland, the UK and beyond. As of the 16th September 2016, the Couthie brand and Scottish Gifts operations will be wholly owned and managed by D&C Supplies. There are some transitional arrangements in place.

From a practical point of view all wholesale orders placed before midnight of the 12th of September will be invoiced and satisfied by Hearts Desire Scotland Ltd.

Nota Bene

To place orders from the 16th September and onwards please contact D&C Supplies by telephone: 01417725949 or email sales@dr-agencies.co.uk.

The online catalogue will remain available to view during the transition, but online wholesale ordering will be suspended until the transition is fully completed.

After 8 years at the helm Ruth Alder (Managing and Creative Director of Hearts Desire Scotland Ltd) said: “It’s been a great journey and I am privileged to have worked with so many talented artists and designers to bring a unique blend of original design and humour. It’s now time to devote myself to new creative adventures and collaborations.”

Craig Rafferty said: “D&C Supplies has expertise in many commercial areas such as manufacturing, logistics, marketing and product development and we are excited to use our skills in these areas to further grow this excellent brand.”

“I am excited that the brand will benefit from the legacy of Ruth’s energy, passion and creativity as we build on the Couthie’s sound reputation.”

Fond farewells and all the best going forward
