Brora is one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful modern cashmere brands and so much more. It has grown into a fully-fledged fashion label with its own distinctive viewpoint. It’s wearable, subtle but highly individual and mainly British-made.
Cashmere hand knitted in Scotland
Cashmere is still at its heart, but now over 50% of its sales come from other items that founder Victoria Stapleton and her design team have created. Pieces to help you build a complete wardrobe around those beautiful knits. From tailored jackets in the finest fabrics to little tweed skirts. There are flattering hip-hugging trousers, glorious printed silk dresses and accessories. Brora remains true to its quirky vintage-inspired self while moving on each season with the turn of fashion’s wheel.
The idea of beautiful British clothes and especially Scottish tweeds and cashmere goes back to 1993. This is when Victoria – who was brought up in the Borders the home of Scottish cashmere and where her father then had a smoked salmon business – started her mail-order firm. Using fabrics from her family’s mill Hunters of Brora in Sutherland and Borders cashmere.
