The Finest Materials
The process begins with raw cashmere, shipped to the mills. The softest, highest quality cashmere is the foundation of the iconic Burberry scarf. Hair is taken from the goat, with each goat producing enough cashmere to weave one scarf. Cashmere's quality is defined by the length and diameter of its fibres; rigorous testing carried out on site using a traditional hand-combing method ensures it is of a high standard.
Made in Scotland
Our cashmere scarves embody Burberry's values of design, craftsmanship and ultimate protection from inclement weather, and are recognised around the world. Skilled craftsmen at respected mills in the towns of Ayr and Elgin make our cashmere scarves using expert methods passed down through generations. The scarves are woven on traditional looms, washed in fresh local water and carefully finished, mixing processes done by hand with those completed on machines.
The Scarf Bar
Our cashmere scarves are available as part of our in store and online monogramming service, ideal for gifting. The new service allows you to create your own scarf from over 30 colours. The selection includes solid colour designs, the iconic check in a range of colours, and runway-inspired prints. Prints are designed in the Burberry studio in London, and all styles are available to monogram with up to three letters in over 30 thread colours and two font sizes.
Personalise your Scarf
The iconic check is available in a wide variety of colours and features a unique scale. Our original check design in camel, black and ivory has been used as a badge of origin since at least the 1920s, originally appearing as a trench coat lining. Camouflage and animal prints can be seen in the Autumn/Winter 2015 runway collections on bags and outerwear whilst heart and dot prints have featured in past seasons. Complementary and contrasting thread colours can be used to monogram your scarf in two font sizes, as a personalised gift or for yourself.
The Perfect Gift
Our cashmere scarves make the perfect gift. Each scarf is carefully packaged in a trench-coloured cardboard tube, inspired by the cotton gabardine fabric used to make our heritage trench coats. The tubes are made in England and embossed with the gold Equestrian Knight emblem, and feature a matching ribbon. Scarves with monogramming include a personalised paper tag with the initials of the recipient.
