Ingles Buchan isn’t just the name of the business, but also the name of their founder. In the Second World War he served as a Spitfire pilot but upon return to civilian life he went to work in his family’s business of Lochcarron Handloom Weavers. In the 60’s he flew the nest and went out on his own.

From the very start, it was Ingles Buchan’s goal to provide the best customer service that he could. He would travel from his home in Galashiels all over Scotland to see all manner of customers and interact face to face. Much more personal than over the phone!

Ingles knew that keeping the heart and spirit of the tartan industry intact was hugely important. So they had their cloth woven in the Anthony Haines textile mill in the town of Selkirk.

Eventually, Ingles retired in 1986. The company of Ingles Buchan was passed to the Brown family who run it to this day under the watchful eye of Colin Brown who is also the Vice Chairman of Scottish Tartans Authority & past deacon of Incorporation of Glasgow Weavers. So the company is definitely under someone who knows their stuff! When the owner of the mill used to weave retired the company went on to purchase the mill and keep the tradition alive and well!
