About DC Dalgliesh

Our fabrics have always been about more than simple materials, but they speak of our history, our values, and the traditions we keep alive

Our values

Our values

 

This is what inspires us

 

There are few industries left where speed and scale are not celebrated. Bigger, faster, stronger is now the way of the world. But not the whole world..

 

There are a band of champions, few in number, who fiercely protect the values upon which all industry was once built – authenticity, quality and integrity. Champions who create products that are part of a story much richer than anything mass produced. Products afforded the time they deserve. Products with soul.

 

We are DC Dalgliesh.

 

The world’s only hand-crafted tartan mill.

Traditional methods, our heart and soul

 

Nowadays we produce all kinds of tartan. But traditional weaving is our lifeblood. Learn about how we still hand-weave short lengths on our unique single-width looms, and the hand-production methods that make these fabrics so special.
