Johnstons of Elgin
Elgin, Morayshire

Independently run since 1797, Johnstons has been making beautiful knitwear, clothing and accessories from the most luxurious wools known to man for over two centuries. At our mill on the banks of the River Lossie in Elgin we still produce all our woven accessories, homewares and much more. Meanwhile, Johnstons knitwear is crafted at our factory in Hawick.

Our mills pioneered the weaving of cashmere and vicuna in Scotland in 1851 and have been processing luxury fibres since that period. Our flagship mill at Elgin is the only mill in Britain to transform cashmere from raw fibre to finished article. It is our way of ensuring consistency of quality.

Spring/Summer 2010 - graphic stripes line up on super-soft, featherweight knits and combine with boxy jackets in linear rib, plain knit and two colour structures where a mix of garment lengths and weights reflects a trend for layering. A palette of punchy brights including tones of coral, lime, turquoise and lilac provides fresh tone-on-tone colour plays when garments are mixed and worn together creating an easy relaxed mood.
