At Twilling Tweeds we have a simple belief: The craftsmanship of a community can be a powerful tool for its betterment. We strive to create unique and imaginative products which cater to market and at the same time, are a means of livelihood for the artisans involved.  

We work on the ground, at the grass roots level in remote parts of Scotland and Pakistan. As such we believe that Twilling Tweeds transcends the tag of “brand” alone. We prefer to see it as a vehicle, traversing a bridge connecting remote communities. Come in, take a look around, there is always room for one more.
