Welcome to the

World of Johnstons of Elgin

We have worked with the world's finest natural, biodegradable fibres for more than 226 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.

Creating A Buzz | The Johnstons of Elgin Bees

Nestled among the trees and flowers at our Elgin mill grounds, another centre of activity hums with life. Beyond the whirr of our weaving looms is the gentle buzz of a thriving beehive, alive with around 30,000 pairs of tiny wings. Our busy bees are more than just honey makers; they are productive pollinators crucial to our ecosystem.
