In 1831, Major John Laing establishes a luxury cashmere mill founded in Hawick Scotland...the epicenter of cashmere country.. It is the oldest Scottish fully-fashioned knitwear brand still to be manufactured in Scotland today. 

All garments are expertly crafted by a highly skilled family workforce that have been passed down from multiple generations to create unique, yearly collections.
