Johnstons of Elgin: Back to their roots

Inspired by the beautiful Scottish landscape, Johnstons of Elgin launch a House Check tartan, whilst there’s a tweed suit in a rich mélange of colours to marvel over.

Few companies have the liberty to revisit their roots in the same untainted way as Johnstons of Elgin. Not only are the family-run firm able to extract pure traditions into the present from nearly 225 years ago, but they do so from the same Scottish landscape from which it was founded. Established by Alexander Johnston, the place in question is the iconic Elgin Mill. Straddling the banks of the River Lossie, the mill is not only revered throughout the world for artisanal craft and exquisite fabrics but a panorama of inspiration to the company themselves.
