Lovat Tweed

Situated on the banks of the River Teviot, in the picturesque Scottish Borders town of Hawick, Lovat Mill has a worldwide reputation for woven excellence in design and quality.

Weaving in Hawick began centuries ago as a cottage industry using wool from local sheep, the abundant supply of water from the River Teviot and, of course, the skills of artisan craftsmen and women.

By the late 1800's, as new dyestuffs and loom types evolved, weaving in Hawick developed into a thriving industry supplying wool cloths to many new international markets. Lovat Mill currently exports around 50% of its product to “Tweed” connoisseurs the world over.

The term "Tweed" was coined accidentally almost 200 years ago when a London cloth merchant misread a label marked “Tweel” - the Scots dialect word for twill – written on a consignment of cloth from Hawick weaver William Watson. Lovat Mill now stands just a few yards from where Watson’s mill once stood.

"Tweed” is one of Scotland’s greatest gifts to the World, with its richness of colour twists and yarn mixtures capturing the very essence of the Border landscape.
