New HydroGraphics Range

Hydro Kelpie

HydroGraphics is an exciting and growing industry in the UK, however, the most sort after products are imported from America. Here at NMS we decided to fill in the gap and create our own UK based HydroGraphics Range. Our products have been tried and tested against the leading brands and come out on top for quality and value! A must try for all dippers out there!


About the Kelpie.... 

Our beautiful, fierce Water Kelpie… the range name and logo has more to it than meets the eye. The Water Kelpie lives in the lochs and rivers in Scotland and it’s often said takes the form of a wild horse. However, like an item ready to be dipped, it can shape shift in to anything to lure its prey back to the water. (Or back to doing lots more awesome dipping in our case!)

You can see stunning statues of Water Kelpies in Falkirk, Scotland.
