Offering hand, powered and computerised looms Scotland’s HEI’s house a great amount of weaving expertise to create new fabrics and textiles.

The universities hold the biggest collection of hand-powered looms in Europe which are maintained by full-time weave technicians who can support commercial projects.

The workshops also have their own yarn stores which have twisting facilities that enable collaborators to experiment with different combinations of yarns for technical and aesthetic purposes.
