ilium opened its doors to Edinburgh in October, 2020. Starting a business during a global pandemic has not been easy but thanks to the support of our customers, our first few months of bringing coffee, clothes and records to Marchmont has been lively, entertaining and gratifying.

We are new to this community of small businesses but to see how strong the community spirit is has reassured us that going into 2021 we will all bounce back and continue the fight for a fairer world.

Our aim is to promote independent and community-led organisations because now, more than ever, we need to help each other to redress the economic imbalance of this country.

“When people support one another, there’s no limit to what we can do.”
