Johnstons of Elgin
Alexander Johnston established the Elgin mill on the banks of the River Lossie over two centuries ago, founding a legacy of fine craft and exquisite fabric created by artisans with a shared passion and devotion to quality. Johnstons of Elgin has over two hundred years of tradition and expertise in textile manufacturing and for us, luxury begins with outstanding craftsmanship and the highest quality, natural fibres. Our dedication, patience and love for our craft allow us to lead the world in cashmere and fine woollens, sourcing only the finest raw fibres available and supplying the world’s top luxury brands. On 1st January 2013, Johnstons of Elgin was awarded The Royal Warrant of Appointment to H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, Duke of Rothesay for manufacturing Estate Tweed. Our recent success and dedication to our craft has led to the opening of our new store on 77 New Bond Street London.
In both our Hawick and Elgin mills, luxurious woven and knitted products have been lovingly produced by devoted craftspeople, some of whom have been honing their skills with us for almost 50 years. The experience and craftsmanship rooted in our history has been passed down through generations to ensure skills are preserved and represented in the products we make today.
To date we employ over 900 people.
A strong sense of continuous natural renewal and evolution courses our Elgin and Hawick mills, expressed each season in our accessories, knitwear, home interiors and apparel cloth ranges.
