British Textile Week 2021: Alex Begg
Alex Begg crafts exquisite woven accessories from finest cashmere, silk, and wool blend yarns at its mill in Ayr, on the West Coast of Scotland.
Home to in-house label, Begg x Co, the company also works with the world’s most prestigious fashion houses. With over 150 years of experience, Alex Begg is synonymous with quality, care, and attention to detail.
In 2020 Alex Begg acquired a sister company, Scott & Charters. Located in the Scottish Borders and operating under the same principles of quality, craft and sustainability, this knitting mill is the perfect complement to their existing activities.
This season the Alex Begg woven collection exhibits fabrics of joyous hand-drawn line, in precious multi-tones, inspired by the company’s archives to question what defines a future heirloom.
