Collective Matter has re-opened in a new ‘pop-up shop’ format in our Hillside space. For opening times & guidelines please visit our about section. Collective Matter is still taking orders and these will continue to be posted safely for delivery once a week. Click and Collect is now also available from our store during our opening hours. Thank you for your patience.
Known locally as ‘Edinburgh’s Disgrace’, the National Monument on Calton Hill was left half-finished when the money ran out. Today it stands as a familiar classical silhouette, forever under construction yet somehow complete, both a symbol of home for many and the stage scenery for countless selfies. To celebrate a phrase fondly used by Edinburgh locals, Collective Matter has worked with artist Mick Peter to create a range of products in praise of folly.
