Silver Stag of Scotland is what is known as a Community Interest Company or CIC for short. This means that we are a social enterprise and want to use our profits and assets for the public good. Our sole purpose is to help serve the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society.
We support a charity, Stand International, which has a long history of supporting and empowering those with fewer opportunities here in Scotland, and in more recent years to those in need in Belarus, Ukraine, Romania and Ghana.
In fact, our STAND tartan has been designed exclusively using colours that represent each of these countries. Every time you buy something from our website or when you visit our stall at a fair, you are supporting the work of STAND International and doing your bit to make the world or a more just and better place - for that we are incredibly grateful.
You can find out more about the work of the charity here .
Throughout the ages, the silver stag has been a powerful symbol in Celtic mythology and folklore. Its appearance in a story usually heralded great change in the life of the central character, and in Scotland these proud and noble creatures are shrouded in great mystery and majesty.
For us, the silver stag represents our proud Scottish heritage. It also represents quality and our commitment to creating beautiful products, locally and ethically sourced and produced, that we know you will enjoy.
As a company we are 100% committed to upholding Aristotle’s firm belief that the point of economic exchange is to benefit both parties. You will benefit having purchased a little piece of Scottish heritage, whether it’s something pretty, fun or useful and we will benefit by being able to offer more support to the communities we work with throughout the world. For us, this represents a great change. Your purchase does so much more than it normally would and is a wonderful step towards communal responsibility and a more balanced society for all.
Thank you very much for choosing Silver Stag of Scotland. We hope you enjoy your purchase as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
