It's All About The Fabric

With the Scottish Fashion Awards last week celebrating the use of Scottish fabric in fashion, we thought we would bring you some stylish options to drool over.

Hawick Cashmere
Scottish fashion company Hawick Cashmere still uses its original 19th century mill in Scotland to create the beautiful Scottish cashmere that makes up its designs. Their Mattice Dress is our favourite, and it can be bought direct from retailers across the UK. To find your nearest store, visit www.hawickcashmere.com.
Jaggy Nettle
Scottish design house Jaggy Nettle creates clothing and accessories from the highly respected Scottish Harris Tweed fabric. Their carefully crafted high-top trainers (£150) are a great Scottish alternative to Converse. To purchase, visit www.jaggynettle.com.
Catherine Aitken
Handbag designer Catherine Aitken also uses Harris Tweed to make stunning trend-led, and practical, bags. Catherine Aitken says "Harris Tweed must be made from 100 per cent pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides and hand woven by the islanders at their own homes in the islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist, Barra and their several purtenances"Our favourites are her Hepburn Messenger (£125) and the gorgeous Bow Clutches (£40). To purchase, visit www.catherineaitken.com.
