Weaving a New Story: Coorie Creative Become Radical Weavers

In a world where innovation and tradition often find themselves at odds, there emerges a tale of rebirth and transformation. Coorie Creative, a name that we have loved for a long time, have taken a bold step towards a new identity. Embracing a legacy of resilience and artistic expression, we proudly introduce to you - the Radical Weavers of Stirling.

The Roots of Inspiration

Before we delve into the exciting journey of Coorie Creative's rebranding, let's take a step back in time to the early 19th century. The city of Stirling, Scotland, witnessed a movement that would forever alter the course of Scottish history - the Radical Weavers of Stirling. These artisans were not just skilled craftspeople; they were pioneers of change, advocating for workers' rights, social justice, and artistic freedom.

The essence of Radical Weavers' spirit has now found a new home in our business. Weaving is not just about threads and fibres; it's about weaving together stories, cultures, and ideas. By adopting the name Radical Weavers, we pay homage to those who dared to challenge conventions and redefine the boundaries of creativity.

The Evolution: Coorie Creative to Radical Weavers

Change is not just a word; it's a process of growth and transformation. Coorie Creative, a name we have cherished for so long, has now evolved into Radical Weavers. But why the change? Our journey began with a simple question: How can we continue to honour tradition while embracing innovation?

After much introspection, we realized that the spirit of Radical Weavers of Stirling resonated deeply with our values. Like those trailblazers, we seek to create not just beautiful art, but also a platform for change. The decision to rebrand was not just about a new name; it was a commitment to pushing boundaries, questioning norms, and weaving narratives that leave an indelible mark on society.
