Our Story

Where we're from is where it's at

As a proudly Scottish family business, our love for our incredible homeland influences everything that we do, and since the summer of 1997 Kiltane has been the leading specialist retailer to bring 100% cashmere to Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.

Our great country and its unique mix of history and innovation inspires us to create our range of cashmere, knitwear and keepsakes. With everything from elegant sweaters for both men & women, to lightweight lambswool scarves, to must-have bags and purses, Kiltane is Scottish, stylish and chic, and everything we design is made to last as timeless wardrobe staples. Afterall, softness never goes out of style.

Although the cashmere fibres themselves are ethically and ecologically sourced from various locations around the world, for almost a century Scotland has been famed for its luxury textile manufacturing prowess and our skilled artisan workforce. However, the quality of Kiltane’s cashmere is unrivalled and we’re very proud to certify that all of our cashmere products are made from nothing less than 100% of the purest fibres collected by our expert partners.

While it’s nice to get back to nature and reflect on our love for our rugged landscapes and dramatic coastlines, we feel most at home in our capital city of Edinburgh. Situated in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle, we have welcomed countless visitors to our nine individual stores over the years, from tourists in search of their family tartan scarf, to style-conscious shoppers seeking an elegant cashmere keepsake to treasure for years to come. Our latest collections take inspiration from our beautiful and historic city, with its iconic skyline, cobbled streets, hidden closes and craggy hills.

Our flagship store at 2 St Giles Street is an iconic building just a few paces from Edinburgh Castle itself and directly opposite the equally striking St Giles Cathedral. This store has become famous around the world as a must-visit location, home to the finest Scottish garments and accessories.
