Glen Appin was originally formed as a cloth manufacturer and converter in 1903. In the 1960s it became a limited company and entered the Scottish gift and textile market. Glen Appin of Scotland designs its own products and arranges their manufacture. The company specialises in Scottish clothing, textiles and gifts.
The company is well-known for their Harris Tweed bags and accessories and traditional tartan children's clothing but they offer a very varied product range which includes Tartan bags, purses and accessories, stoneware, napkins, pet products and the largest selection of Scottish tea towels.
