At Brora, we have never been about fast fashion and instead design smaller collections made from quality fabrics in timeless styles, which is why Fashion Revolution’s campaign to highlight

#whomademyclothes

is one of our favourite weeks of the year. The campaign unites a global community to create a better fashion industry, and this is even more important as we emerge from a global pandemic.

“Who makes our clothes has always been a key consideration and many of our partnerships date back to 1993! It is great that a serious light is being shone on the provenance of what we wear which I feel passionate about.”

We have been working with the same mill in the Scottish Borders for 28 years. It is there that people like David, Debbie and Sebastian expertly craft our stunning cashmere pieces, with skills ranging from cutting, linking and sewing seams; and of course, there are also numerous quality checks and people involved in every stage of production.

Image

We are extremely proud to be the only company we know with a team of Scottish hand knitters, clicking away tirelessly to create cashmere bootees, mittens and bonnets for precious newborn babies. By investing in these talented craftspeople we are very much keeping this fantastic skill alive!

“The impact of Covid-19 has had a huge effect on the industry at all levels, and when we went into the lockdown in 2020, I am proud to say we didn’t cancel any of our orders. As the year progressed, we worked closely with each of our partners around the world to overcome country-specific lockdowns, major changes to working and delays so the outcome has been as good as possible for us, our suppliers and our loyal customers.”

Our experiences over the past year have only highlighted the positive impact of having close relationships with our suppliers. Take our amazing seamstresses and sewers in Portugal who helped us to raise over £270,000 for various charities through the pandemic, by making our face masks in Liberty fabrics.

When we are safely able to travel again, we look forward to visiting our partners who we have missed. One of Victoria’s personal favourites is Vibhu who runs our sewing room in India; he and his team have become friends over the years and their skills with hand embroidery, lacework, embellishment and the tiniest of pintucks never ceases to amaze! Do explore our detailed white shirts and silk dresses with hand-sewn copper beads on the hem.

Transparency, sustainability, and ethical practices remain at the heart of Brora and we will continue to work with our premium partners all around the UK, Europe and beyond who we can rely on for impeccable standards at all times.
