The Rainbow Effect started life as a small company producing rainbow coloured and tie-dyed infant and childrens clothes and accessories. As The Rainbow Effect developed, founder Jean Donaldson re-visited her passion for all things vintage and began producing a range of vintage fabric trimmed baby wear, childrens tee-shirts, blankets, beanies and sleep pillows. Donaldson also started researching and working with recycled fabrics and applied this to an adult range of vintage and recycled fabric trimmed lavender bags, totes, shoe bags, drawstring bags, hot water bottle covers and bespoke garments.
The Rainbow Effect aims to continue working with vintage and recycled textiles and build relationships with contemporary Scottish designers and textile producers, to collaborate on a range of Scottish themed gifts that avoid the twee tartan image of Scotland and instead promote Scottish designer-makers as vibrant, innovative and resourceful.
