So, you want to know more about us. Ok Presence of Mann is our online shop but we also have two physical shops, The Manx Tartan Shop in Laxey and MostlyManx shop in Douglas.

We have three permanent members of staff, Annie, Nicky and Suzanne who are all passionate about the Isle of Man and all three of us have been together in the shops for 10 years but friends for much longer.

The Manx Tartan Shop which sells a huge range of Isle of Man Tartan gifts. The shop is situated just up the outside stairs from the car park at the Laxey Woollen Mills complex, and our sister shop in Douglas, MostlyManx, which sells quality Manx gifts and presents, situated in Nelson St at the back of Marks & Spencers. Some Manx Tartan Shop item are available on Presence of Mann as are MostlyManx products with an intro to the artisans and makers. 

At our MostlyManx shop in Douglas, Isle of Man, customers can enjoy a refreshing return to 'traditional' shopping, with a warm, personal service. The emphasis is on quality products which are reflected in the luxurious store layout which was handmade by a local company, The Village Workshop from Laxey. We sell locally crafted items - and products that have had artwork commissioned by us from local artist. A relaxed atmosphere and gorgeous gift-wrapping all add up to a pleasurable shopping experience. MostlyManx Hampers are well known and popular not just at Christmas time but all year round especially with our corporate clients. Check out the hampers on our Manx Hampers pages

The Manx Tartan Shop compliments Laxey Woollen Mills as most of the products are made from tartan cloth woven by master weaver, John Wood, here in the Mill. From luxurious travel rugs, wool and cotton scarves, handmade handbags bearing the Laxey Woollen Mills badge of authenticity, to aprons, ties and even dog collars.

We opened the shops because we love the Isle of Man and love promoting it by selling a wide range of Manx themed goods in both shops, many unique to us, Manx tartan rugs, scarves, handbags, kitchen co-ordinates, cushions, Ellan Vannin glassware, books and possibly the widest selection of local greetings cards on the Island.

We are passionate about our Island and are always willing to help in anyway we can, working closely with Laxey Woollen Mills, we can offer most of their products for sale through this web site, so if you have visited the Mill complex and forgot to buy something, get in touch and we will help.
