Brora’s cashmere collection is probably among the very best of Scottish produced cashmere. Everyone who owns a Brora knows what I mean when I say a Brora is to be cherished. A privately owned business, Brora of Scotland is passionate about ‘made in Britain’ and is widely renowned for the quality of its cashmere, it’s hallmark contemporary styling and the extensive range of colours and design.
The cashmere used by Brora is ethically sourced as you would expect. The soft fibres come from Inner Mongolia, home of the Kashmir Goat, the cashmere producing species who also roams the wild plateaus of the Himalayas and Northern China.
The garments themselves are all made in Brora’s mill in Scotland, a mill that has produced cashmere now for over 200 years. As a cashmere specialist, Brora has collections for men, women and cashmere for children.
