Today I had the pleasure of visiting @johnstonsofelgin’s mill in Elgin, Scotland. 🏴
Johnston’s of Elgin was founded in 1797 and has since then been the pride of Scottish weaving and knitting. The mill in Elgin has since 1811 been their home and today it employs more than 1,000 people and produces an impressive 350 tonnes of (combed) cashmere a year (plus around 60 tonnes of Merino).
Johnston’s have for long been know as ‘the brand behind the brand’ producing for several high-fashion houses because of their incomparable skillset in weaving and knitting the most exquisite cashmere garments and accessories. Whilst this is still their main business, they have over the past few years been putting a lot of effort into the development of their own label. An exciting new chapter that has been advanced with the hiring of creative director, Alan Scott, in 2016 and the brand’s debut at London Fashion Week in 2018.
