Highland BlindCraft was established over 150 years ago; a factory was set up to provide employment for blind people from throughout the Highland area. Prior to working in the factory many blind children were taught at the blind school. When they reached the age of 15, the children were transferred to work in the BlindCraft factory. The factory is still at its original premises, 39 Ardconnel Street, Inverness.
Today, as a registered Scottish charity, Highland BlindCraft is still run on the same founding principals. Although now included are people with a variety of disabilities from all over the Highlands and Islands.
In its full production factory in Inverness, Highland BlindCraft employ 19 highly skilled visually impaired and disabled people, along with 4 other able-bodied individuals. Designing, manufacturing and selling: beds, divans, mattresses, headboards and chairs to the highest standards.
We are also suppliers of traditional and contemporary pine beds, headboards, bedroom and occasional furniture, pillows and mattress protectors.
The business is part supported by the department of Works and Pensions and Highland Council. The balance of wages and all overheads, sales and administration costs are met from trading successes.
Highland BlindCraft is an ethically run business, employing and supporting local people doing a fantastic job.
