About | Eat Haggis

A range of contemporary Scottish design and products including t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, cards & prints. The Eat Haggis range all started from a poster I made for a friend's St Andrews Day party a few years ago.

They were looking for something bright, bold and fun and I decided to do a Scottish spin on the classic old War Poster. I was pleased with the result and uploaded onto my blog. Almost immediately people started contacting me asking if they could get copies and within a few weeks I had so many enquiries that I had to look into getting some made. I worked with the Glasgow Print Studio to produce a really high quality print run and from this all the other designs and products grew.

Scotland is a wonderful country and the main aim of 'Eat Haggis' is to celebrate and be proud of all that it has to offer and we try to do so with a sense of humour, bold colours and really high quality products and design.

As well as buying through this site we have a range of wonderful stockists all around the country, see list here

SCOTLAND
Scotland is a country occupying the northern third of the islands of the British Isles. It consists of a mainland section and over 790 smaller islands. It is famous for whisky, tartan, haggis and it's people having a strong sense of humour.

HAGGIS
Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish memorialised as the national dish of Scotland by Robert Burns in his poem "Address to a Haggis" in 1787. They originally contained sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours. Most modern commercial haggis is prepared in a casing rather than an actual stomach and vegetarian haggis is also now quite often served which does away with all meat and is surprisingly tasty. It is usually served with Neeps and Tatties (turnips and potatoes).

CEILIDH
A Ceilidh (pronounced Kay-Lee)is a traditional Scottish gathering involving folk music and dancing. They usually take place after wedding, at New Year and at Burns' Suppers on the 25 January when Scots celebrate the life of the National poet Robert Burns.

DESIGNED BY
The Eat Haggis range was created by Scottish based architect/artists Hole in my Pocket who have worked on a range of unusual projects since 2002, from short films for Channel 4, building a Victorian storytelling machine for the Shetland Museum to trying to solve the MP's expense fiasco through creative means and forming their own religion 'Himptology' for an exhibition at the Glasgow International.
