Our home and heart is in Hawick, in the Scottish Borders. This area has a rich heritage of knitting traditions and manufacturing, and we are proud to still make many of our famous cashmere pieces and more intricate designs here.
The Scottish countryside with its panoramic scenery, rolling hills, moors, mountains and terrain of every hue is hard to describe to someone who hasn’t experienced this wonderful part of the world. It is in no small part why that ‘of Scotland’ remains proudly stitched into every garment produced by Pringle.
We believe that no matter how good new technology is, there will always be a restriction. The expert knitters we work with achieve intricate detail, with no element overlooked, by putting their hearts as well as their hands to work.
With two centuries of history, it is not hard to find many, many connections to Scotland’s heritage. The iconic argyle pattern is derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in western Scotland and originally featured on kilts, plaids, and socks worn by Scottish Highlanders since at least the 17th century. More recent designers and creative directors have visited all parts of the Highlands in search of new inspiration and traditional techniques to weave into our modern collections.
