Within only a few years Paul, Alessandra’s son, set up a successful cashmere Intarsia woollen mill with outstanding craftsmanship working on every minute detail of the designs, which were bequeathed by his mother. He travelled to London, where sales to reputable outlets in Mayfair and St. James were followed by quick expansion to the States and Japan. In these countries cashmere Intarsia knitwear garments of Glenevan Mill were considered unique pieces of art. His travels brought an increasing awareness of individual customers’ needs and a private showroom was opened next to the factory in Innerleithen where customers could be measured for bespoke garments.
Over the last few years, Alessandra’s nieces have been arduously involved in relaunching the company, recreating some of Glenevan’s heritage designs and creating new contemporary designs. We are still crafting hand-made garments and we are still based in the Scottish Borders.
