A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LUCKENBOOTH

The 'Luckenbooth' dates back many centuries in Scotland. They gained popularity during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots in the 16th century and still hold a significant meaning today.

'Luckenbooths' are said to be so called as they were first sold from "locked booths" in Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Traditionally, they were exchanged between lovers on their betrothal, and subsequently pinned to their first child’s christening shawl to protect them from evil spirits.

These heart-shaped designs, surmounted by the crown of Mary Queen of Scots, and often decorated with the Scottish Thistle, are one of the most romantic artefacts from Scotland's rich history, resulting in their enduring appeal.
