Timorous Beasties is a textile design and manufacturing company founded in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons. The name Timorous Beasties comes from the Robert Burns poem, "To a Mouse."
Timorous Beasties defines their creation as a nightmarish vision of contemporary Glasgow inspired by traditional textiles such as Toile de Jouy and white damask. Their early prints used motifs of fauna and flora derived from illustrated encyclopedias. McAuley and Simmons also execute special commissions,.
