About us

Lady Haig's Poppy Factory has been producing poppies in Scotland since 1926.

Today, our team of disabled and vulnerable ex-service men and women produce millions of poppies and tens of thousands of wreaths, Remembrance symbols and long stem poppies each year.

How we make poppies and wreaths

Making poppies involves a lot of cutting, pressing, mounting, and shaping. But how exactly is it all done?

See how we make different styles of poppies, Remembrance symbols, and wreaths. We even use some of the same machinery from Lady Haig's days!

Our history

In 1926 Lady Haig established Lady Haig's Poppy Factory in the Canongate, Edinburgh, with two men and a pair of scissors.

After nearly 100 years, we're still providing employment support for disabled veterans. But a lot has changed.
