Brora is one of Britain’s best-loved cashmere brands, producing luxury knitwear and beautiful clothing for the whole family. With a focus initially on Scottish cashmere, Brora has grown into a fully-fledged fashion label, producing exciting seasonal collections each year. However, the brand is not about fast fashion: instead it creates designs which are made to last, from the highest quality fabrics and yarns.
All of Brora’s cashmere is sourced from the native goat of the Mongolian plateau and is of grade A quality with all coarse ‘guard hairs’ carefully removed. Up to seven shades are combined to create each of its cashmere colours, resulting in a vast depth of tones, which are unique to the industry.
Regular investment in the latest technology, combined with skills passed down through generations of local families, ensure each piece can be enjoyed for years to come. Over 50 processes are involved in making a single cashmere jumper at one of the oldest mills in Scotland, where all of Brora’s cashmere is made by talented craftspeople. This level of attention to detail is what gives every garment a luxurious finish. In addition, a dedicated team of highly skilled hand-knitters produces much of Brora’s babies’ and children’s knitwear and accessories.

In 2019, Brora was proud to have supported Save the Children through a collaboration with Helena Bonham Carter, Erin O’Connor and Laura Bailey, from which ten per cent of profits went to help children build a better future. The exclusive collaboration followed the success of a dream cashmere collection with Emma Thompson, Kirstie Allsopp and Daisy Lowe as part of the brand’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
While Brora continues to grow and evolve as a brand, supporting British manufacturing and producing quality designs that are made to last, will always remain core values for the business. Victoria Stapleton says, ‘We are a quintessentially British brand and we’ll continue to remain true to our quirky, vintage-inspired self while moving with the turn of fashion’s wheel each season.’
