A large part of the lower floors of the Tartan Weaving Mill are host to Edinburgh’s only fully working commercial weaving mill. Visitors can view the weavers at work through numerous viewing points in the mill factory shop.
Thousands of yards of tartan cloth, blankets and scarves are woven each year. Well known and popular tartans are woven such as Royal Stewart, Thomson Camel, Black Watch, clan tartans and many others alongside new privately commissioned tartans.
The Tartan Weaving Mill by The Castle has five floors of retail indulgence for visitors to the capital with probably the largest consumer range of cashmere, lambswool, wool and silk mixes and other knitwear in one location in the entire city. A vast array of brands and colour choices awaits the unsuspecting visitor.
Made to measure
The very cloth from the 100-year-old looms and other machines is not only available to purchase in the factory shop, but it can also be taken to the in-house kiltmakers who can at special request produce made to measure handmade kilts for wearing the next day!
