  • Last night Archie Hume and Amy Stirling attended
    the Industry Event at the Graduate Degree Show at
    Heriot Watt Universitys internationally renowned
    School of Textiles in Galashiels.

  • The School of Textiles has been an important
    source of talent for the textile industry since
    1883 and graduates recognised by industry as
    world class are employed both locally and
    globally.

  • Whilst many of the graduates will have
    experienced industry directly through placements
    and internships, last nights Industry Event was
    an important and exciting opportunity for
    students and industry representatives to meet.

6
  • Recruitment is common at the event and prominent
    names such as Lyle and Scott travelled from
    London to view the work and meet students.

7
  • In recent years the local textile industry has
    experienced a resurgence as lots of small
    companies carve a niche for luxury, high end
    textiles and knitwear.

8
  • Chanels purchase of Barrie Knitwear is perhaps
    the most public face of this trend but throughout
    the Borders there are a number of small
    businesses and mills, sometimes employing as few
    as 10 staff and the links between these companies
    and the School of Textiles are of mutual benefit
    to all.

  • Archie and Amy were hugely impressed by the
    craftsmanship, technical knowledge and
    innovation. They were particularly drawn to
    Louise Jenkins work in tweed and felt theyd
    found a kindred spirit when they learned that
    Louise had completed an internship at Archies
    favourite mill, Lovat Mill, weavers of A Hume
    bespoke tweeds.
