Centuries in The Making
The Cloth of Kings is a bespoke collection that’s completely handmade and constructed by Master Craftsmen in Scotland and England.
The Harris Tweed – An Clo Mor – is hand woven by artisan weavers on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, a process that takes between 6 to 8 weeks to blend and dye the wool, spin the yarn, hand loom weave and finish the cloth.
The finished tweed is then sent to a textile finishing company in Yorkshire to enhance the cloth for performance, shower proofing, stain resist, and anti-microbial properties. The cloth is then laminated for durability and waterproofing.
The premium luggage is constructed by craftsmen in Cumbria, the high calibre shooting accessories in Malton, North Yorkshire, the throws and scarves in Ayr, the Harris and Lewis caps in Castleford, and the first-class furniture in Shipley.
Malcolm introduced himself to Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as ‘Malcolm the Scottish weaver’.
Her Majesty was beguiled with stories of tartan, of wool, of sheep, of Harris Tweed, and of Scotland and she was impressed by the tales of Scotland’s textile heritage.
