Founded in 1783


The Isle Mill is part of the Macnaughton Group, a family company founded in 1783. It is recognised as the foremost weaver and wholesaler of soft furnishing and upholstery fabrics in Scotland.

The Isle Mill originated in Dumfriesshire, with four looms and a handful of local workers, in the fortified tower on the company logo today. However, due to its significant growth under the Macnaughton family, the business was relocated to Aberdeen in the early 1970s.

Here it diversified from traditional tweeds and tie cloths into tartans and throws. The business flourished, and in the late 1980s the decision was taken to expand further, into soft furnishing and upholstery fabrics. This successful move into the furnishings market precipitated the mill’s relocation to the Highland town of Keith, where our current mill is based today. Surrounded by spectacular countryside, nestling beside the same burn that feeds one of Scotland’s most famous distilleries.

The Isle Mill carries an extensive range of furnishing fabrics which is supported with stock to facilitate excellence of service and quick delivery. However, with its advanced computerised design technology the company is also highly flexible and is happy to undertake design projects to meet clients’ specific requirements. The Isle Mill benefits from a Showroom at its Perth headquarters, clients and customers are most welcome to visit.
