Johnstons of Elgin – Part II

In the previous article on the Scottish corrugated manufacturer Johnstons of Elgin, we chose to focus on this company’s long history and unique manufacturing they have today where they do exactly every step from raw material delivered to a finished garment or fabric. We went through a large part of their process and craft that takes place and chose to focus on their knitwear and accessories which the company is perhaps best known for. What not many people know but which we think is very exciting is that they are also manufacturers of some of the world’s finest tweed fabrics. In today’s article we will tell you a little more and show up a jacket we have let sew using Cavalière MTM services in a 550g / m brown plaid tweedtyg from Johnstons of Elgin.

In the mid 1800s, Johnstons involved in the emergence of what Scotland was called Estate Tweed. This Estate Tweed fills a similar role as the famous Scottish clan box, the so-called Tartan Clan, as it aims to create a community and discernment. The difference is that clan box used by members of the same family / relatives while Tweed Estate aims to unite and identify the people who live and work in the same area.

Lord Lovat once told how his grandfather had been influenced and inspired by the colors of sand, ferns, birch, heather and flowers at Loch Morar beach and they flowed together in a beautiful way. From that took Johnstons their inspiration when they created their original Lovat mixture.

Estate Tweed was originally much larger than it is today. Then it had a more practical function and could withstand the bumps, wet and life in the country in a different way than today. A little ironic live the majority of tweed carrier now in the electrically heated homes in the town after which the fabric is now slightly easier, which increased the area of ​​use.

In the previous text about Johnstons we mentioned that the company knitwear is manufactured in its factory in Hawick. The tweed fabrics we focus on today weaves those in the original factory in Elgin.

Today, many of the world’s best-bespoke tailors and MTM services tweed fabrics from Johnstons. An extra wide recognition the company received in January this year when they were appointed to the Royal Warrant of Estate Tweed to the royal family. In this connection visited Prince Charles and Camilla factory Hawick. During the visit, the prince also meet with several local farmers and suppliers who are all involved in the wool industry. As a board member of the “Campaign for Wool” has Prince Charles did an extraordinary job as ambassador for the domestic wool industry in the UK and once again sat an old craft of the map.
