In the previous article about the Scottish wool producer johnstons of Elgin, we chose to focus on this company’s long history and the unique manufacture they have today in which they themselves are doing exactly all the torque from the raw material delivered to a finished garment or fabric.
We went through much of their process and the craftsmanship that is done and chose to focus on their knitted garments and accessories the company is perhaps most well known for.What not many know but which we think is very exciting is that they are also producers of some of the world’s finest Tweed fabrics. In today’s article we will tell you some more about this and shows up a jacket we have allowed sew up using Cavalieres MTM services in a 550g/m Brown Plaid tweedtyg from johnstons of Elgin.
In the mid 1800’s it was Johnston’s involved in the emergence of what came to be known as the Scottish Estate Tweeds. This Estate Tweed fills much the same function as the famous Scottish Tartan pattern, the so-called Tartan Clan, as it aims to create a community and discernment. The difference is that the Tartan pattern is used by members of the same family/clan while Estate Tweed aims to reconcile and identify people who live and work in the same area.
Lord Lovat told me once how his grandfather had been influenced and inspired by the colors of sand, ferns, birches, Heather and flowers at Loch Morars Beach and they flowed together in a beautiful way. From this took Johnston’s inspiration when they created their original Lovat mixture.
Estate tweeden was originally much larger than it is today. Then it had a more practical function and could withstand blows, wetness and a life on the land in a different way than today. A little ironic lives the majority of all tweedbärare now in electrically heated homes in the town in which the fabric is now somewhat easier which increased use.
In the previous text on Johnston’s we mentioned that company’s knitted garments are manufactured in its factory in Hawick. The Tweed fabrics we focus on today, they weave in the original factory in Elgin.
Today, many of the world’s best bespoke tailors and MTM services Tweed fabrics from Johnston’s. An extra large recognition the company received in January of this year when they were appointed to the purveyor of Estate Tweed to the Royal family. In this connection, Prince Charles and Camilla visited the factory in Hawick. During the visit got the Prince also meet several local farmers and suppliers, all of which are involved in the wool industry. As a member of the Board of “the Campaign for Wool” has Prince Charles made an extraordinarily good job as Ambassador for the domestic wool industry in the United Kingdom and again put an old craft on a map.
