    'Troupe' by Susan Stockwell


    What were your first thoughts when you were approached by Begg & Co to create this sculpture? 

    I was Intrigued about how such a collaboration would take shape.I had images in my head from the start, which weren’t that different to the finished work.


    What have you learnt about Begg & Co in your research?

    They’re a small friendly company specialising in a high-end product, drawing on old traditional techniques combined with contemporary designs and methods, this combination is what produces their very beautiful, unique, fine textile scarves.

    They are NOT corporate, which was reassuring and I think contributes to the special uniqueness of the scarves.


    Did your visit to the factory inspire you?

    Yes, it gave me lots of ideas, particularly with the large reels/bobbins; I had an idea for a huge scale installation from seeing them, a sort of giant’s textile studio! I loved the machines, both old and new and it’s the juxtaposition of old and contemporary that I’m interested in with my own work. I have explored this in other contexts, such as ‘Flood’ in York, which was a massive installation made from recycled computer power supplies sited in an 11th century deconsecrated church.

    I was fascinated with the repetition, of many things, such as coloured threads, machines, reels and of methods being repeated, over and over, this again is what I explore in my own practice. There were lots of parallels with my processes and the processes used by Begg & Co, though in a different context and with a different outcome. I grew up in Manchester in the 1960’s when the remnants of the textile industry were still in evidence, I visited old textile mills and studied the history of Manchester and its textile industry so visiting Begg & Co’s factory and seeing these processes wasn’t unfamiliar to me. However its far more refined and contemporary.


    What struck you about all the steps in the production of a Begg & Co scarf?

    The attention to detail, at every stage.

    Inventive problem solving in order to get what they want, however tricky.


    Were there any parts of the process that surprised you? Or even, did the number of processes in the production of a scarf surprise you?

    Yes and No, I know that to make anything well and to that quality and design it takes much, thought, work, time and dedication so in that way no but seeing it of course I was surprised because it was so finely tuned and there was so much attention to every detail. I think the quality control and checking every inch again and again surprised me most. Some of the clever methods used to resolve weaving problems with fine materials was delightfully surprising!


    And how did you use what you learned about the brand's heritage and production values in the creation of 'Troupe'?

    I made figures that draw from, or play on traditional shirt front designs.

    I also worked with a small fine art metal workshop so that the same care and thought could be applied to the works at every step of the process, in order to make them individual and not have a corporate or machine made feel.


    Tell us a little about the process of its creation and how the metal juxtaposes with the softness of the cashmere scarves?

    I began making drawings to develop the design of the figures and work through different ideas on paper. I checked in with Begg & Co’s Sales & Marketing Director, Ann Ryley along the way to get feedback and her thoughts and contributions. I had a couple of old manikins in my studio, which I used to test scarves on, to be sure that the forms I made would hold and show off all the scarves fully. I realised that as well as the chest the neck and shoulder forms are crucial, acting as the main structure or scaffold which gives the scarves their 3D form. This was pivotal in my decisions when making the full necks, shoulders and chests on each figure. However keeping this structure as minimal as I could get away with so it looked good yet presented options to hang, wrap, tie and display the scarves in a diverse multitude of ways. Long outstretched arms, hooks, hands, legs, curved metal bars spaced and bent in many directions.


    Have there been challenges along the way?

    Of course! I think that’s inevitable with commissions and when working creatively with others.

    I prefer to refer to these challenges as creative problem solving!


    How was working with metal as a material for you – is it something you’ve experimented with in the past anyway?

    Great! I did work with metal when I was at college and have worked with materials that behave similarly, such as computer components, which are a combination of metal and other hard materials. Working with metal, welding, grinding bending opened up possibilities for new works and ways to resolve issues I have with other work.



    The end result is Troupe – what do you believe are the successes of this project? Are you pleased with it?

    Yes I’m VERY pleased with it!

    Its quirky, strong and harks back to some of my old work.

    The figures do work as scarf display units – they’re fit for purpose and I love the juxtaposition of the steel with the soft textiles, one compliments the other and enhances their difference...the scarves look even softer against the steel, there’s a tacit quality about it.



    If you could describe the process of working with Begg & Co in three words what would they be?





    And what have you learnt from working with Begg & Co?

    That it can be great as an artist to collaborate with industry especially with a small company like Begg & Co, it’s more intimate, I got to meet lots of their employees and really see how the company works. It is a great, well run company and I wish there were more companies like Begg & Co out there, companies who are willing to work with artists and be open and confident enough to believe in their product enough to take this kind of a risk. It is a risk relying on trust and belief.


    Are you a natural scarf wearer?

    YES, especially my new Begg & Co Staffa Rouge!

    Celebrating 150 Years of Luxury

    Begg & Co says happy anniversary by pushing the boundaries of colour and craft

    How to mark this significant Begg & Co 150-year anniversary? A question that Sales & Marketing Director Ann Ryley, the creatives and production team at Begg & Co had been asking themselves as the brand approached its 150-year landmark. Inspired by the brand’s heritage of creating beautiful colours in the most luxurious cashmere, they firstly came up with the idea of producing a special collection of plain scarves in 150 cashmere colours inspired by Scottish landscapes and seascapes.

    The Colours of Begg & Co

    “We have taken our heritage cashmere shades and put a new spin on them by reweaving the colours into a contemporary and unique palette of heather, moss and sea blues. This palette celebrates Begg’s 150 years in an ever-changing Scottish landscape,” says Ann Ryley of the extensive collection, which includes 34 completely new colours of plain scarves in Begg & Co’s signature weights from the lightweight Wispy to the more traditional Arran.


    One Scarf, 150 Colours


    With all the hard work needed to create the 150-strong shade palette Begg & Co decided why not further push the production wizardry of the Begg & Co manufacturing team by using these 150 shades in one limited edition bold check scarf. Only 150 of these have been made for sale globally and each one is numbered and labelled with a special anniversary label. The manufacturing process used to create the anniversary 150-coloured check scarf was a complex one. In order to incorporate 150 different cashmere shades within the design, six warp and 25 weft colours were required. In layman terms, this meant that five cones of different coloured yarns needed constant changing – sometimes five times in an hour – throughout the weaving process.




    Global Celebrations

    The hard work has paid off. Now the collection of 150 colours of Begg & Co in 150 scarves is currently on display in a bespoke cabinet stores worldwide.

    It launched in The Conran Store in Paris during Design Week and Paris Fashion Week.


    It is now also showing in Bergdorf Goodman in New York, Fenwick of Bond Street in London, Lansmere in Seoul and United Arrows in Tokyo.


    Between now and Christmas this special display will also launch at SKP in Beijing and a number of other Japanese stores.

    The anniversary scarf is also available through global stockists
    and through the Begg & Co online store.

    Mats Klingberg of Trunk visits Begg & Co HQ

    We were lucky to have a visit in Ayr from the stylish Mats Klingberg. Mats is the owner and founder of London store Trunk Clothiers, which features collections of the best menswear and accessories from Japan, Italy, the US, Sweden, the UK and beyond. We asked him his impressions of his tour around our factory.


    Mats, you've had an extensive tour around the factory. What are your first impressions?

    Very impressed! It’s amazing to see all the different things – old and new machines, some 100 years old, and others brand new specially designed collaborations. It is wonderful to see all the love and time that go into making the final offering of a Begg & Co scarf.
    It was difficult to imagine the processes even though I have had this explained to me many times however, after experiencing it I love Begg even more! There really are no corners cut.


    Before you stepped inside were you aware how many steps were involved in the process of a Begg & Co scarf?

    No – even when it has been explained but when you get to see it with your own eyes it’s much easier to take in and simply amazing to see.


    And so now you know, there is a lot of old-meets-new technology within the production process, which of the steps within the journey of one scarf really impressed you and sets a Begg & Co scarf apart from its competitors?

    Where to start?!  In particular the milling machine which has stocks that almost punch the fabric (Mats gave us a wonderful demonstration of this), the old Paper Press, how you wash your cashmere for longer than others in the industry, the investment in new machinery to specially wash newly introduced fabrics and finally I was amazed by how quiet the factory was. It wasn’t like the industrial environment I imagined.

    Mats visit to Begg and Company


    How do you work a scarf into your everyday look?

    Primarily when cold but often with London’s weather there is no need to wear a coat – wrapping up in a big Begg & Co scarf is ideal for the temperatures.


    Do you have different ways to tie a scarf for different occasions?

    I tend to have a standard wrap around look when it’s cold but to create a more elegant look I just wear it open and have it hanging neatly down the sides of my jacket.


    If you could tell the world about what makes a Begg & Co scarf stand out when you pick one up for the first time - what three words would you use?

    Pitti Uomo June 2016

    June's Pitt Uomo marked the launch of our 150th anniversary celebrations.
    We have taken the Begg & Co heritage cashmere shades and put a new spin on them by re-weaving the colours into a new contemporary Scottish palette ... a palette which celebrates Begg’s 150 years and sense of place within an ever changing Scottish landscape. We will release a special collection of 150 new cashmere colours in  a variety of signature weights from our Arran oyster ripple finish to our super lightweight Wispy.



    To kick things off we asked some friends of Begg & Co to select their favourite scarf from the 150 collection and tell us why they love it.



    Mats Klingberg
    Owner of Trunk Clothiers

    "The scarf is nice and light. I like the colour because it’s a good alternative to navy…I always wear navy!"


    Tim Yates
    Trunk Clothiers

    "I like the lightness of the scarf. As for the colour, grey goes with everything and this is an especially happy grey which I love."


    Keita Hiraoka

    "Both the colour and texture of the scarf is good; the melange effect is beautiful."



    Eisuke Yamashita
    Fashion Director Men’s Precious Magazine

    "My favourite colour is beige so the melange orange matches perfectly. The softness of the orange is very nice as orange can be quiet strong. The richness of the weight and touch is amazing."



    Marcus Söderlind
    Nitty Gritty

    "I usually wear black so I always like to choose something that goes well with black and grey is perfect. This scarf is not too thick so could be worn indoors as well as outdoors."



    Mr Hiroyasu Ohta

    United Arrows – The Sovereign House

    "I have played Japanese Kendo since I was a child, the colour of the uniform is always indigo -  I really like the familiarity of the colour of this scarf. The quality is fabulous as well as the colour, especially for a cool spring evening."


    We also commemorate our anniversary with an elegant special edition Arran scarf in a bold check that incorporates all of the 150 colours.
    This is a limited edition of just 150 scarves, each clearly numbered and labeled.

    Launches end August 2016.

    What accessory transforms your look from mundane to miraculous?
    I do love a scarf and how wearing one in any of the number of ways one can knot one can really personalize a look. It adds just that extra little bit of personal style.

    Describe your general style?
    I have a pretty standard uniform made up of tailored pieces, whether sportcoats or suits, worn with a mixture of casual and more formal pieces:a denim shirt with a knit tie, or a suit with sneakers. I like to balance the dressy with the more relaxed.

    Which item never gets left out of your suitcase for business or pleasure?
    I never travel without my vintage Helmut Lang denim jacket. And I always travel with a swimsuit...stays packed in my carryon. You never know where you're going to be, whatever the season.

    I always look forward the incredible variety of craftsmen and vendors here at Pitti. Sweater designers, shoemakers, well established luxury brands and new, small designer lines. You never know what you are going to find here or what is going to catch your eye, but I always leave Florence inspired and energized to start the new season.

    Your timeless style icon?
    Hmm. That's a hard one. 1960's era George Peppard (Breakfast at Tiffany's) was pretty great.

    How have you tied your Begg & Co scarf today and what would be the ideal outfit to wear it with?
    I do a pretty standard wraparound and knot. it's quite practical as it really keeps the heat in. I love how this plaid plays off of the colors of my tweed sportjacket. I think it's pretty neutral and will go well with quite a lot of looks, but I do think it would look great with a denim jacket as well.

    Pitti Uomo June 2015

    Summer Scarves: How do you wear yours?

    Scarves are too good to be kept just for winter. These stylish visitors to menswear exhibition Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy this June told us why.

    1. Alan Nam
    Fashion consultant and founder of The Alan Company

    Alan Nam, Fashion Consultant and Founder of The Alan Company, wearing Wispy Superfine Cashmere Scarf in Orange. Available now. Alan Nam, Fashion Consultant and Founder of The Alan Company, wearing Wispy Superfine Cashmere Scarf in Orange. Available now.

    Explain why you believe more men should adopt the summer scarf into their wardrobe?
    Less men are wearing ties so there is now a need for an iconic piece of clothing to express a person's character and a scarf is a nice option to replace said tie.

    For you, what are the three main criteria of the perfect scarf in warmer climes?
    -Length should not too long or bulky
    -Soft-but-light cashmere which still provides warmth for early mornings and evenings
    -Must have a summer character in either colour or design

    Do you go big on colour or keep it neutral? And is it all about plain or do you prefer pattern?
    Loud colours and patterns.

    How do you wear yours and what do you wear it with?
    Worn loosely during summer and added to an outfit as a reflection of self to others.

    Is there a style icon from film, music or perhaps the fashion industry around Pitti today that you believe completely nails the summer scarf?
    Franco Minucci (the well-respected owner of the Italian institution Tie Your Tie)


    2. Hugo Wiik
    Creative director of Nitty Gritty

    Hugo Wiik Creative Director of Nitty Gritty, wearing Staffa Konyak available in Spring 2016 Hugo Wiik Creative Director of Nitty Gritty, wearing Staffa Konyak available in Spring 2016

    Explain why you believe more men should adopt the summer scarf into their wardrobe?
    More comfortable than wearing a tie - it can be used to add something a little more flamboyant to an outfit. A scarf is an easy way to complete a look.

    For you, what are the three main criteria of the perfect scarf in warmer climes?
    -Matches your style

    Do you go big on colour or keep it neutral? And is it all about plain or do you prefer pattern?
    Always neutral but not necessarily plain especially in warmer seasons. 

    How do you wear yours and what do you wear it with?
    Wrapped but with a casual look to avoid looking restricted.

    Is there a style icon from film, music or perhaps the fashion industry around Pitti today that you believe completely nails the summer scarf?
    Peter O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia and Hiroki Nakamura Founder and Designer of Visvim.

    Explain why you believe more men should adopt the summer scarf into their wardrobe?
    Adam: It is a really versatile way to dress up a T-shirt with a little jacket  which adds  more expression. A scarf can take you from day to night.

    Do you go big on colour or keep it neutral? And is it all about plain or do you prefer pattern?
    Adam:The scarf allows your mood to show through, some days a neutral vibe is needed other days a real pop of colour.

    How do you wear yours and what do you wear it with?
    Leo: Depends on the weather, mood, event, time of day and the material of the scarf.

    Is there a style icon from film, music or perhaps the fashion industry around Pitti today that you believe completely nails the summer scarf?
    Adam: Paul Newman
    Leo: Steve McQueen

    Which Begg & Co scarf must be yours and how will you wear it?
    Kishorn Washed Flannel Grey with a leather jacket or suede zip up.
    Today’s choice was Wispy Army in a braid knot as this quality works well tucked into tailored/ suit jackets.

    Testing the limits with Wispy

    How light can cashmere go?
    With five miles of the finest yarn in every scarf the Begg & Co Wispy is woven cashmere at its lightest reveals Nicola Campbell* from her factory tour with Operations Director, David Woodhouse

    Since the brand’s launch in 2013, the biggest success story for Begg & Co is its Wispy scarf. As Operations Director, David was instrumental in the creation of this unique and beautiful lightweight scarf. The Wispy is cashmere at its finest. “The development of the Wispy goes back to 2004, it started with a conversation between myself and one of our yarn suppliers in the back of a car on the way to restaurant in Italy. We were discussing just how far you could push it in terms of making the finest, most lightweight cashmere product. How close to the edge could you go, to the point where it was so light and wispy (the name stuck) before it was impractical to make? That was the challenge I put to the yarn supplier. He came back with the idea of using a very, very fine cashmere thread spun from a fantastically fine cashmere fibre of which there is very little on the market. He said that the resulting yarn is way too fine to weave however he had this idea of a technique where we could use a supporting thread on the yarn that would help it through the weaving but that would later be dissolved in the finishing process,” explains David, who spent the next 18 months to two years working on making this revolutionary idea a reality. “At first it was a complete disaster – hopeless. I nearly gave up so many times along the way because it wasn’t working and every trial cost a lot of money. But eventually we perfected it. The supporting thread [for the delicate cashmere yarn] is actually a hardened PVA glue spun into a thread, which we then twist with the cashmere. The resultant thread is quite strong so we can weave it. After it is woven, we treat the fabric in an aqueous solution at a high temperature and the supporting thread transforms into liquid form and disappears. It leaves behind this very fine cashmere that otherwise you would not be able to weave.”

    Begg & Co's superfine wispy being produced in our mill in Scotland

    So David’s Wispy dream has become a reality: “It’s fantastic for us. It is unique in that it is the lightest cashmere product to come out of Scotland.” So the Wispy and its revolutionary yarn were perfected and developed for market in a range of plain colours and screen prints and its success grows and grows.

    Ann Ryley, Begg & Co’s Sales & Marketing Director, concludes: “The Wispy is a firm Begg & Co bestseller. When I am out talking with our retail partners about the collection they tell me that they love being able to tell their customers there is an impressive five miles (8km) of this superfine cashmere yarn woven into each scarf. That they can say the yarn in the scarf would take you the length of Manhattan or from Clapham to the centre of London, so their customers can visualise just how fine the cashmere in these scarves is, underlines the beauty of The Wispy. It really is cashmere at its finest.”

    Lucia van der Post in Financial Times How To Spend It

    "All in all, it is the perfect garment"
    Nick Foulkes in Financial Times How To Spend It 

    "The Wispy was ideal for travelling, so light and soft, it took up hardly any room in my hand luggage but once wrapped around my neck was incredibly warm- it’s perfect for keeping cosy during a flight"
    Kate Pittam, PR & Partnership Manager at Scott Dunn

    "A Wispy Superfine Cashmere Scarf by Begg & Co makes a great travel companion."
    The Conran Shop

    "My wispy has become like a best friend...always a comfort and makes me feel great. It packs to nothing and I take it everywhere."
    Sarah Murray of Jane Davidson

    "The Wispy is the perfect travel companion and is equally popular with both men and women. Super light and a great way to add a little texture and/or colour to your outfit. And some gentle warmth around your neck when needed of course. Makes a great gift as well."
    Mats KIingberg of Trunk Clothiers
