Ardalanish Weavers & Farm, Isle of Mull
Ardalanish is a farm and weaving mill based on the Isle of Mull. The estate covers about 1500 acres of moor and farm land and houses sheep, cattle and horses. Visitors to Ardalanish can experience the weaving process and purchase woven goods in the shop.
The project involved website design & development, an e-commerce shop, product and lifestyle photography.
We started by photographing the vast estate, showcasing the breathtaking moorlands, sea views, animals and history of the land. Product-based photography included single products on natural backgrounds as well as lifestyle model photos. It was essential to show the incredible quality and texture of the woven fabric.
It was important for the website design to reflect the natural beauty of the landscape and product. This is why we chose to keep a very natural colour palette and use a large static image for the home page including subtle tones instantly recognisable in the product.
The site is easy to navigate with direct links on the homepage guiding the user through different pages. The news and blog section allows the reader to keep up-to-date with all the latest from the Ardalanish team.
The weaving process page shows a step by step guide from fleece to fabric allowing you to understand what makes each product so unique. Other pages showcase unique, hand-made items which can be directly commissioned.
The E-commerce shop is one of the key features of the site. We created a user-friendly online shop allowing you to find out more about each product, see related products and add them to the basket. Colour and size options are easily selected through a drop-down menu. Each category is represented by a hand drawn illustration.
