Our latest White Rose tweed collection has been designed by the iconic cloth designer Pat Keeney, as his last commision before retirement and manufactured entirely at the equally iconic Johnstons of Elgin.
From 1963 Pat's talents have been skillfully engaged by some of the finest tweed and cloth producers in Scotland such as Blenkhorn & Richardson, Robert Laidlaw and Reid & Taylor. We are incredibly honoured that Pat has brought his lifetime's experience to this collection.
Saxony wool was chosen as it produces a soft yet extremely durable cloth and Johnstons have very kindly produced the same yarn blend as dictated by their 200 year old records.
Interpreted into modern versions of classic designs the White Rose Saxony range is destined to become an important addition to the tweed landscape.
