Handmade in Scotland

Seilebost beach, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides.

Our cloth and scarves are handmade in Scotland by some of Scotland’s best artisans, chosen for their outstanding craftsmanship, quality of work and pride in their craft tradition. Designer Kitty Mackenzie has long admired the dedicated craftsmanship which goes into producing fine Scottish cloth, and the artisans who uphold the Scottish textile traditions for new generations to enjoy. Through her Scottish tweed and cashmere designs she wants to celebrate the talents of the makers who support their communities with their living textile traditions.

The Weavers

We are proud to work with individual weavers on the Island of Harris and Lewis, and around rural Scotland. They work at manually operated looms located in a work shed adjacent to their home. Their inspiration comes from the dramatic surrounding landscapes which are in turn reflected in the beautiful colours of the cloth they produce.

The Harris Tweed weavers work in conjunction with the local wool mill and the Harris Tweed Authority will inspect every bolt of cloth before stamping with the famous orb mark prior to despatch.

The Wool Mills

Our estate tweeds and cashmere are woven in Scotland’s finest mills, where the soft water is ideal for washing the cloth. From the textile heartlands of the Scottish Borders in the south to the far north we only choose the finest cloth, working with small, exclusive businesses, as well as long established Scottish suppliers.

The Tailors

Our scarves are hand-made by Edinburgh tailors, amongst who is Italian master tailor Giuseppe Cannati and his niece, Claudia. Giuseppe started his tailoring career at the age of ten and trained with Gucci in Milan and then worked with Louis Feraud in Paris. He is rightly proud of the quality of his workmanship and his loyal and devoted clientele are evidence enough of meticulous attention to detail and Italian sense of style.

The Box and Label Makers

Our gorgeous labels and gift boxes are handmade by a two small Scottish businesses, both supplying high quality bespoke goods with creative flair and attention to detail.
