While tradition and heritage are deep within the fibre of our business, Johnstons of Elgin have always been innovators, travelling the world to source the most inspiring materials to create unparalleled products. We have also maintained a commitment to moving forwards – investing in state-of-the-art technology and experimenting with patterns, weights and shapes of products.
In recent years, Japanese Wholegarment technology has allowed us to knit in three dimensions for entirely seamless pieces. Our Wholegarment knitting machines create designs in one piece, so there is no requirement for linking, seaming or sewing. The result is Cashmere and Merino Wool pieces that are more comfortable, more form-fitting and have a more elegant finish than ever before.
Our fine Jacquard machines have revolutionised what we can produce within our woven accessories collections. We can now make the finest, most intricate patterns in even the most delicate of Cashmere and Merino Wool fibres, and we continue, year on year, to push the boundaries of what we can achieve.
