The Isle Mill
The Isle Mill is part of the Macnaughton Group, a family company which was founded at the end of the eighteenth century, more than 200 years ago. It is recognised as one of the foremost weavers and wholesalers of furnishing and upholstery fabrics in Scotland.
Combining the finest natural fibres with time honoured techniques, The Isle Mill designs and weaves distinctive fabrics, many of which take their inspiration from the natural splendour and breath-taking colours of the surrounding Scottish Highlands
The Isle Mill originated in Dumfriesshire, in a fortified tower which still features on the company logo today. It started with only four looms and a handful of local millworkers, but due to its significant growth under the management of the Macnaughton family, the business was relocated to Aberdeen in the early 1970s.
Here it diversified from traditional tweeds and tie cloths, into tartans and throws. The business flourished, and in the late 1980s. the decision was taken to expand further into soft furnishing and upholstery fabrics. This successful move into the furnishing market precipitated the mill’s second relocation, to the Highland village of Keith, located between Aberdeen and Inverness. There, it is situated in spectacular countryside, nestling beside the same burn that feeds one of Scotland’s most iconic distilleries.
