Editorial Feature - Glenevan Mill

Slow Fashion

A couple of months ago I was asked to head to the Scottish Borders to shoot an editorial feature on Glenevan Mill. Their website says...

"Since its foundation in 1978 among the hills of the Scottish Borders, Glenevan Mill Ltd has been producing exclusive handmade Cashmere knitwear for its discerning clientele around the world. We craft garments for customers with a true appreciation of handmade and slow fashion."

And when these guys say hand made they mean hand made. I watched their knitters in awe as they worked at a level of expertise that is impossible to put into words.

Spent the morning with the lovely Aurélie Auffray as she showed me behind the scenes.

Scotland has a proud history in textiles and the Scottish Borders specifically specalised in Knitwear. From Pringle to Coco Chanel this was a world dominating industry. Sadly in recent years it has been decimated by cheap and cheerful brands flooding the market. Still it is encouraging to see a business like Glenevan hold its own, and it's quality and success are a true reflection of the dedication of this proud team.
