Our Scottish cashmere
The Travelwrap Company is all about scrumptiously soft Scottish cashmere and comfortable style. I love beautifully knitted fine cashmere and have a fascination for colour and designs. When I launched The Travelwrap Company in August 2007 we brought these two factors together in our signature piece, the Travelwrap, a simple knitted, beautifully designed cashmere wrap…making life more comfortable.
We have worked with our mill in Scotland since the beginning of our journey. Our mill knits for some of the biggest luxury British brands and their cashmere knitting is recognized as some of the best in the world. I spent probably a year before I stated our business finding the right mill to knit for us as I was not going to compromise on the quality of the cashmere or the palette of colours. My decision to work with the best mill I could find and to manufacture in the UK was timely. I think more and more our audience to becoming more discerning in their choice of cashmere. Our mill uses only the finest long haired yarn from the underbelly of the goat and our colours and cashmere melanges are full of depth and interest because we often use 3 or 4 different shades to make up one colour.
Ethical trading and high quality manufacturing are essential to us. Our mill in Scotland is one of the longest established in the UK. Our mill actively participates in programmes to help prevent over-intensive grazing of pastures by cashmere goats, and has worked with the same group of herdsmen for over 200 years. The fibres of cashmere that go to make up our cashmere products are dyed at our mill in Scotland and the colourful cashmere yarns provide a palette full of richness and depth. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail from our fine craftsmanship to final presentation in our signature box and in particular our level of customer service is second to none.
We have been lucky enough to win some great awards (including Luxury Gift of the Year and Best New Business) over the last couple of years, which has really helped us to spread the word about The Travelwrap Company, but our strongest testimonies come from our growing base of loyal customers. Our thanks to all of you!
