While Collective is closed due to the current health crisis we need your support more than ever. Collective Matter is still taking orders and these will be posted safely for delivery once a week. Parcels will take longer to get to you than usual - thank you for your patience in these difficult times.
Don’t blow the weekly shopping budget in one go – instead buy little and often with the help of a sturdy, non-plastic, bag. Emblazoned with the Edinburgh’s Disgrace logo, our recycled cotton tote won’t flake on you when the shopping gets heavy
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.
