What sets Brora cashmere apart is the workmanship that goes into each piece, much of which is done by hand. Made at one of the oldest mills in Scotland, the skills involved in working with cashmere have been passed down through generations of families. Only the finest and longest fibres are used in Brora cashmere to ensure the end result is of exceptional quality.
Each season, Brora brings you a selection of prints taken from the vast archives of Liberty of London, re-coloured to sit perfectly alongside our seasonal knitwear offering. Printed onto the finest fabrics, the result is a range of flattering shapes and styles for all ages. With a heritage dating back to 1875, Liberty certainly know a thing or two about creating stunning prints and we are proud to have worked closely with them for decades. All of our Liberty jersey styles, along with our Liberty print knickers, are made right here in the UK by skilled seamstresses like Myra, Kim and Jackie who all have over 30 years’ experience in the industry.

For us, the ‘British Tailoring’ label means all garments in question are 100% British-made. From our pattern cutters to our woven tweeds and wool, to the East London tailors, all British tailored pieces are exactly that, meaning you can buy Brora safe in the knowledge that you are supporting local artisans.
Linen is one of the world’s oldest and strongest textiles as well as being a sustainable fashion choice. It relies only on rainwater to grow and produces just ¼ of the carbon of other crops.
All of Brora’s linen designs are created in Europe, with just a short distance to travel before they reach our customers. Each of the linen weaves we produce are unique to us, often being designed in-house and using several shades to create modern and innovative textures.
As a natural, zero waste product, every part of the linen crop is used. While the fibres of the flax plant are used in clothing, anything leftover is used for food, homewares and even the interior of tennis racket handles.
Brora’s clothing collection is made using authentic methods with strong emphasis on the quality of workmanship. To make each piece extra special, intricate detailing such as embroidery and beading is carefully added by talented artisans, often hand sewing bead by bead to create intricate designs.
Our design team make annual visits to the small factory, owned by a man named Vibhu who we have been working with for many years. During their trip, they are able to see these incredible skills first hand and discuss new ideas for upcoming seasons.
Created in 18th century Scotland, tweed was born from a need for hard wearing, well insulated, tailored clothing. Woven from strong virgin wool, the qualities of tweed ensured farmers stayed warm and dry in harsh conditions.
Tweed comes in a range of variations, including the world-renowned Harris Tweed which is identified by the mark of the regal orb. Renowned for its quality and authenticity, Harris Tweed is made only in the Outer Hebrides, by craftsmen and women who hand weave every metre of the fabric. Each Harris Tweed weaver will have their own loom with unique sounds, quirks and idiosyncrasies. These differences mean that only the weaver will know how to get the best result from their loom, resulting in a fabric whose impact on heritage fashion is unrivalled.
