THE ART OF CASHMERE
BY MAISON BARRIE

The Barrie knitwear mill in the small town of Hawick, Scotland, joined CHANEL in 2012, twenty-five years after completing its first orders for the company. Their shared creative vision has brought the ancient tradition of the finest cashmere woven in the Scottish borders to CHANEL's iconic two-tone cardigan.

The Maison Barrie's soft-hued palette offers a range of exclusive colors for the Métiers d'art collections. Its spools in various sizes give an exceptional quality of yarn, while a production method unchanged since the early twentieth century, requiring painstaking accuracy and dexterity, makes the cashmere soft yet strong, giving a knit of outstanding quality. A highly qualified workforce with a skillset that is now rare makes Barrie cashmere knits a true luxury.
