Their pillars in the production of cashmere are:
- Craftmanship: it is still alive and actual, and it is the main pillar of their productions.
- The production process: a sweater passes through no less than 20 pairs of hands before it is completed.
- The wash: the first process is when water from the local river is used to wash the garments, opening the cashmere fibers, which imparts their trademark softness.
- The attention to details: the hand-sewing area is where the sweater collars are closed with a needle and thread. This meticulous attention to detail and finishing cannot be replicated by a machine and is done only by professionals who train for over a year.
- The control phase: garments are sent to a team of menders who repair a multitude of irregularities. In preparation for these scenarios, a mender uses contrasting colored thread to help track their stitch structure and ensure consistency of the overall weave.
- The label: a Brooks Brothers label is attached with our stamp of authenticity: “Makers and Merchants. 100% Scottish Cashmere.”
This is their cashmere, a symbol that is synonymous with quality, luxury and care.
