Tartan Swatch Book
The Scottish Borders

Our bespoke Scottish Textiles Couture Trail takes you off the beaten track to visit Scotland’s finest weavers and mills, makers of the finest cashmeres, tartans and tweeds, and suppliers to Chanel, Burberry, Dior, Hermes, Saville Row tailors and other famous couture houses around the world.

Bespoke Tours, Cut From a Different Cloth

Designed for the discerning client who is looking for an authentic Scottish experience, our private tours offer an exciting opportunity to meet the makers of exquisite Scottish cloth, knitwear and lace and witness first hand the unrivalled excellence in Scottish craftsmanship skills.  Discover the story behind the Made in Scotland luxury brand and engage with Scottish provenance, history and culture.

From the Borders town of Hawick in the south to the Isle of Harris in the far western isles, Scotland boasts a rich and diverse textiles heritage, inspired by the colourful hues in the local landscapes. Through our close relationships with weavers, knitters and mills we have compiled a series of itineraries to whet your sartorial appetite.

Whether your interest is Scottish tweed, tartan, cashmere or lace, the Scottish Textiles Couture Trail will reveal the intricate production processes, and the makers’ stories.  You can even design and commission your own unique cloth.

From day tours to overnighters, you will have a private expert guide and chauffeur throughout the trip. We can help you choose a tartan or sporting check. Retail therapy, a wee dram and local highlights are all part and parcel of the tour.
