Most known for the famous Paisley pattern, now used across the world, our town is certainly recognised and celebrated in the textile industry. Paisley is also renowned for its impressive architecture, including of course, Paisley Abbey and Paisley Town Hall – but we’re also very proud of our own building on Gilmour Street, which features a traditional and impressive pillar design.

Walker Laird are proud to support Paisley’s bid for UK City of Culture, as it is important that we highlight and celebrate the town’s rich heritage.



We were proud to be sponsors for Pride of Paisley 2016, which ran from July 9th until September 25th. Attracting new visitors, the lion-inspired art project emphasised Paisley’s culture and heritage and Walker Laird chose to sponsor two lions in the exhibition.

We sponsored the Town Hall Lion by artist Margaret Fraser and the Wellmeadow Street Lion by artist Caroline Watson. For more information on all sculptures and artists, visit Pride of Paisley.
