All of our cashmere wraps are lovingly made and hand-finished in Scotland. Why Scotland? Quite simply, because Scottish cashmere is the finest, most luxurious cashmere in the world.

It all began in 1831 when a Scotsman named Captain Charles Stuart Cochrane patented his method of weaving cashmere with French-produced yarn. A few years later, Captain Cochrane sold the patent to another Scotsman who devised a method of spinning his own yarn. Cashmere was now a wholly Scottish product and it quickly earned a reputation for excellence. A reputation it has maintained for nearly 200 years.

So there was never any question of our Travelwraps being made anywhere but Scotland. But it’s not just where they’re made; it’s who makes them: founded in the Borders in 1797, our independent, family-run mill is the only one in Scotland that undertakes every stage of the production process, transforming natural fibres into exquisitely finished cashmere. We love the fact that each fabulously soft, beautifully made Travelwrap began life as a sack of raw cashmere in the Scottish Borders.

Knitting with only the finest quality, sustainably sourced fibres and employing a unique blend of dyes, our mill supplies leading couture houses and fashion independents worldwide; its beautiful pieces are frequently seen on the catwalks. It’s much revered at home, too: in 2013 it was granted The Royal Warrant by HRH The Prince of Wales for the manufacture and supply of Estate Tweed cloth to the Royal household. So we know our precious cashmere Travelwraps couldn’t be in safer hands.

But we don’t just leave it at that. We visit our mill regularly, meeting the knitwear designers and talking to the talented local craftspeople who work there. We follow our gorgeously soft Travelwraps through every stage of their production, from the knitting machines to quality control and hand-finishing.

Though richly steeped in more than two centuries of tradition, the mill is constantly innovating, employing cutting-edge technology and moving forward with fibre combinations and finish. To us, our mill is the past, present and future of luxury Scottish cashmere, and we are thrilled to be making the magical journey with them.
