A range of contemporary Scottish design and products including t-shirts, mugs, cards & prints.

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. We want people to think of Scottish Design in the way they think of Scandinavian Design something of quality to be treasured.

Everything you see on the site has been designed and illustrated by me Allistair Burt. (Currently, due to this stupid and horrible virus, it is also entirely packed and posted by me too, but I'm hoping my wee team will be back soon.) You can find out more about me and my design practice Hole in my Pocket on my other website.

As well as buying through this site we are lucky to work with some wonderful stockists all around the country, see list here.

Scotland is a Northern European country on the far West of Europe. 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 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).

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.

The Eat Haggis range was created by Scottish based architect/artist Allistair Burt via his design studio Hole in my Pocket. As Hole in my Pocket he who has 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.
