Johnstons of Elgin

Two-hundred years of the finest cashmere knitwear, accessories, home accessories and furnishing fabrics

There is no doubt that the sheer quality of its cashmere is what gives Johnstons of Elgin the edge on its competitors. Still family-owned, the brand has a worldwide reputation for excellence, working with the finest sustainable, natural fibres. The company has stockists across the globe with five retails outlets in Britain, including Bond Street, London and Edinburgh’s Multrees Walk. Johnstons of Elgin is the only vertical mill in Scotland, taking raw fibre through every stage 
of the manufacturing process to perfectly finished products on-site, using skills and techniques passed down through generations. The brand’s rich heritage and traditions are balanced with contemporary design and innovation, the experience gleaned from
more than two centuries of craftsmanship meeting state-of-the-art technology.


Perfectly showcasing this happy marriage between past and present is the brand’s iconic knitwear. From classic cashmere sweaters to chunky cashmere cardigans, the knits offer grace and style, referencing artisan techniques and contemporary, archive-inspired patterns.

From traditional checks to
this year’s herringbones and geometric designs, exquisite craftsmanship remains at the core of everything Johnston’s of Elgin does

Timeless clothing, such as elegant coats in cashmere and wool, body-skimming layering pieces in fine merino wool and elevated loungewear and athluxe styles, makes this a brand for all seasons.


Johnstons of Elgin’s accessories combine luxury, warmth and style, ranging from chic neutrals in the softest cashmere to vibrant patterns in superfine merino wool. Scarves and stoles are continually reimagined in beautiful blends of cashmere and silk and tissue weight cashmere. These new weights offer versatility, while innovative technology allows even the most intricate of patterns to be woven into the most delicate fabrics. The brand’s signature cashmere stole remains one of its most coveted pieces.


The same principles apply to the interior
fabric collections, which are made with longevity
in mind. Taking inspiration from around the world, the unique and innovative collections for upholstery, drapery and soft furnishings have a durable but incredibly soft finish,
with sleek, tonal colour palettes. From traditional checks to this year’s herringbones and geometric designs, exquisite craftsmanship remains at the core of everything it does.

Johnstons of Elgin’s elegant throws and bed throws, crafted from super soft merino wool and lambswool, also bring texture, interest and colour to any space. These generously sized investment pieces are also made to last.

The brand’s logo, depicting a ‘J’, a thistle and a bee, encapsulates the Johnstons of Elgin story. The J references the company’s founding family, who brought cashmere to 18th-century Britain, while the thistle represents the brand’s commitment to manufacturing in Scotland. The bee reflects the skill and hard work of its workforce. Johnstons of Elgin embodies both slow luxury and effortless style. The brand understands that time itself is a luxury, so doesn’t rush its processes to guarantee distinctive design and exceptional quality. It’s clear that over 200 years of skill, craftsmanship and authenticity are not just part of Johnstons of Elgin’s DNA; they are woven into every knit, throw and fabric it creates.
