Illustration of the word 'Slanj' formed by thistles


‘Slanj’ is print #6 in a quirky collection by the artist Cat Lawson. The Thistle Kingdom Collection brings Scottish words to life in the form of unique and characterful thistles. This charming print is a reproduction taken from an original hand crafted painting produced using a cross-hatch ink drawing technique and watercolour.

What does ‘slanj’ mean?

Slanj” is the phonetic form of the Gaelic word “slainthe”. As a traditional Scottish toast meaning ‘health’, with “slanj-a-va” (good health) as the response. You’ll likely hear this at celebrations or in a pub when glasses are raised and chinked to wish each other well.
