SÒLAS create sleepwear combining contemporary shapes and custom prints using high-quality fabrics. Their trio of silk sleepmasks with hand ruched bands feature the prints Teal Buttercup, Machair and Rhododendron. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment of Scotland and nostalgic childhood memories, the brand has a focus on minimal design, comfort and modern luxury.
A collaboration between Ruth Mitchell and Ciorstaidh Monk, SÒLAS merges their complementary aesthetics, skills in fashion design, print and photography, and is a design identity that encourages an inclusive, holistic, comforting experience for the wearer with an emphasis on quality and attention to fine detail.
