Founded in 1797 on the banks of the River Lossie and has only been run by two families, the Johnstons and the Harrisons. In the 1840’s Johnstons of Elgin was involved in the origination of a range of designs known as Estate Tweeds. Colours were chosen that blended well with the background of mountain and moor, the most famous being the Lovat Tweed. Johnstons is the UK’s last remaining vertically integrated woollen mill and is the only one to carry out all the processes from raw material to finished garments.
