WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

The story of weaving in Lochcarron started back in 1938 when Mr Wood was sent from Galashiels, in the Scottish Borders from the home of the company.  He was to teach the art of weaving to the folk of Strathcarron.

With him Mrs Josephine Buchan, mother of the company’s founder Morris Buchan, it was Josephine’s job to manage the new workplace.  Local wool spun by the women of Lochcarron and the surrounding parishes was used in the making of tweeds, white blankets and rugs.  Woven on handlooms the products were first exhibited at the Kyle of Lochalsh Show.  Ten years later Hattersley looms and the yarn was sent from Galashiels and the first piece of tartan was woven in 1949 – a length of ‘Crawford Tartan.

Since these humble beginnings, Lochcarron of Scotland has gone on to become the world’s leading manufacturer of tartan.  And we are very proud that the company still bears the name of where it all began more than 75 years ago.
