Blog 1: Beginnings New and Old

Hello world!

What a pleasure it is to welcome you to Mahraka, the Twilling Tweeds blog.

I’ve been looking forward to this feature for a long time. The concept of “Blog” has somewhat widened over the last few years, and so I will be using this space for a number of things. You can expect to see on the ground progress diaries from North Scotland and Chitral; pictures and videos of artisans making the products you have been seeing on the site; interviews from the creative minds behind Twilling Tweeds and the art world at large; all this this mixed with any other splashes of creativity that myself or another member of the Twilling team feels would befit here!

We will of course try to post as regularly as possible although, I must say, remote locations combined with snail’s pace internet access doesn’t lend itself well to active blog keeping! But it won’t be for lack of trying I assure you.
