Another Tartan designed by Hamish Carruthers to commemmorate the Scots who gave their lives in World War 1. The colours represent their blood, the uniforms of the armed services and the gold of Scotland’s Lion Rampant. Well received by many including the press.
So sad to see this lovely building slowly rotting. Why in the Borders do we not make sure our interesting heritage is preserved?
Great to see the high quality work made in Scotland
Tremendous skills to be found at Marton Mills and Roberts Dyers and Finshers
Such respect for James Sugden, a textile man for the majority of his life, passionate, encouraging and generous with his time. He will be very much missed.
