An innovative luxury cashmere collection, designed and manufactured in Scotland

British based designer Rosie Sugden founded her eponymous label in 2011. A graduate in Knitwear Design, her accessories line combines her idiosyncratic take on contemporary design with the inherent natural beauty of Scottish Cashmere, brought out through extraordinary craftsmanship.

Rosie’s fashion-forward designs are regularly featured in top fashion magazines and she has designed exclusive collections for Anthropologie, Liberty, Neiman Marcus, Harrods and Net-a-Porter.

Her designs are hugely influenced by her surroundings, be they the rolling hills of Scotland where she is based , or the striking landscapes of countries she has visited on her global travels in search of cultural inspiration. These aspects of art, fashion, and culture are reflected in each individual Rosie Sugden collection and we hope you will get as much pleasure in owning and wearing these unique designs, as Rosie has had in creating them.

The philosophy

The emphasis is on creating long-lasting products as an antidote to the throw away clothing mentality and in support of British manufacturing industry. Therefore all the cashmere is made in Scotland.

Product story

All our products are made from 2ply woollen spun Scottish yarn. The fibre used is 100% chinese raw material from the upper grasslands of Alashan in Inner Mongolia. Each spring in April the fibre is combed from the goats before being sorted, washed and de-haired,whence it begins the long journey to the Highlands of Scotland where it is dyed and spun in a 200 year old mill. Material is always dyed in open fibre form, ensuring the softest of handle, brightest hue and longevity of the product; the true hallmarks of Scottish cashmere. These products are built to last.
