Why choose Proggy and Tweed?
Proggy and Tweed Designs is owned and run by me, Kim MacGillivray. I design and make beautiful and unique accessories and clothing in soft, luxurious merino wool felt, silk and Harris Tweed. I can help you find a special gift, or that unique accessory to lift or refresh a favourite outfit, or dress up something plain and classic for an occasion, or something truly individual for everyday wear. I can design and make something just for you, incorporating your ideas and preferences. Friendly, personal attention is guaranteed, whether in person or online. Do please contact me if you would like to discuss a commission.
After over thirty years in education and teaching and working with textiles, I decided to focus my time on making beautiful things for people to wear in my favourite medium, wool. I started Proggy and Tweed in 2015 and have never looked back.
My philosophy is simple -
natural, high quality materials
my own original designs
carefully handcrafted by me
help my customers find something special
Most Proggy and Tweed designs are made using wet felting with soft, merino wool and silk. I also love to mix knitted elements and Harris Tweed into the scarves, hats and garments I make. If it's wool then I love using it! Why not browse the Galleries to see some Proggy and Tweed designs?
Everything from Proggy and Tweed is handmade by me in my studio in Auchterarder in Perthshire, so you can be sure that everything is made with care, attention to detail and love. You are very welcome to visit me in my studio by appointment. Contact me to arrange a visit or class.
My designs are mostly one of a kind and I welcome commissions.
