Developed by Judy Murray, The Cromlix Collection is a range of exquisite fashion accessories and homeware made by Scottish-based designers from a tweed which was exclusively designed by Harris Tweed Hebrides for Andy Murray's Cromlix Hotel.
Inspired by the famous Wimbledon colours purple and green the tweed range includes the 'Kate Clutch' bag, the 'Munro Messenger' bag, the 'Hayworth Handbag', a clip fastening change purse, ‘his and hers’ toiletry bags and dome-shaped Harris Tweed cufflinks set in sterling silver, an iPad and iPhone 6 cover, a cushion cover and a tea cosy.
Catherine Aitken, Gráinne Broderick and Katherine Emtage have all contributed their renowned craftsmanship to develop the current range which is available to purchase at the hotel, from the hotel website and on Shopify.
Each item has been carefully handcrafted by all the talented designers blending both traditional and modern techniques, with the Harris Tweed hand-woven by independent weavers based in their croft sheds across Lewis and Harris, using pure virgin wool that is dyed with separate pigments before being carded and spun. It is this ancient process that defines all cloth officially certified with the world-renowned Harris Tweed Orb symbol making it genuine Harris Tweed – the world’s only commercially produced hand woven tweed.
In addition to the accessories range a number of made -to-order products are available for purchase online, including a ‘Wild Stole with Luxury Coquille Feathers’ and a Wrap Belt by Catherine Aitken.
Judy will be adding more products to the range throughout the year, with something special planned to help everyone cher on Andy in style at Wimbledon!
Judy said: “I wanted to develop something unique for Andy’s hotel which would reflect Cromlix’s heritage and also showcase the fantastic textiles and craftsmanship that Scotland has to offer. Cromlix is a stunning location to visit and now guests will be able to take home something memorable from The Collection in the hotel’s signature Harris Tweed.”
