Welcome to the

World of Johnstons of Elgin

We have worked with the world's finest natural, biodegradable fibres for 225 years. It takes time to create our luxurious, high-quality designs, and our products are made to last for more than a lifetime. We are committed to continually improving our sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint.

Over two centuries of experience have taught us to be gentle with our exquisite Cashmere and Merino Wool fibres. Our Elgin and Hawick mills are still family-owned, with Elgin one of the last remaining vertical mills in Scotland, meaning we dye, spin, weave and finish everything on site. We marry delicate care and our soft Scottish water with innovative technology, outstanding design and unrivalled craftsmanship, to deliver products we are incredibly proud of – all Made in Scotland.

Wild Swimming on the Scottish Coast

We shot our shoreline-inspired summer collection on the Hopeman coast, less than ten miles from our Elgin mill. The beach at the 200-year-old village is a seasonal playground for surfers, paddleboarders and wild swimmers brave enough to embrace the chilly waters.
