Brooch in MacGregor Tartan Tweed by Clare O'Neill
From our exclusive collection, this Tweed Brooch is designed and handmade in Scotland from Islay Tweed.
Luss is the historic home of the Clan Colquhoun and this range of MacGregor items are created in homage to the Clan Colquhoun's ancient enemies, the Clan MacGregor. These days the clans are very friendly and the ancient disputes are long resolved.
The tweed used in this design is woven exclusively for us on the Scottish Isle of Islay by The Islay Woollen Mill, where tweed has been in continuous production since the 1820s. The tweed is handwoven from 100% pure Scottish wool. The tweed's weave is very tight and dense, ideal for durable accessories.
The tweed is given further protection by a Du Pont Teflon coating at the finishing stage to enhance the moisture and stain resistance of the material.
