Barrie, founded in 1903 in Hawick, a small village in the Scottish Borders, is one of the oldest cashmere factories in Scotland. Having started by making stockings, the factory extended its savoir-faire in the 1920s to clothing, and in particular sweaters and knitwear.
While tradition and technique are unwavering values at the House, it also stands out for its taste in innovation and daring. This is why, as well as supplying the biggest names in fashion, starting with CHANEL, Barrie launched its own brand in 2014.
Since 2018, under the impetus of artistic director Augustin Dol-Maillot, cashmere has become a field of pure exploration combining the factory’s creativity and savoir-faire.
