TO celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick, local charity Live Borders is hosting a ‘Styled in the Borders’ exhibition.

Until October the exhibition will showcase examples of the highest quality textile design and fashion from the region.

The Towerhouse was established with the aim of giving visitors a new, exciting experience of not only the heritage but also the present and future of the area’s textile producers.

Over the past decade, Borders Textile Towerhouse has exhibited work from fashion designers, style-creators, single-person businesses, factory producers, artists, and craftspeople.

All are linked by the common thread of making high quality, well-designed products, using wool, cashmere and other materials, including leather.

The new ongoing exhibition showcases a selection of eight Borders makers and manufacturers - Aero Leather, Eribé Knitwear, Frances Teckkam, Hawico Scotland, Jaggy Nettle, Johnstons of Elgin, Teviotdale Arans, and William Lockie.

Together they give visitors the opportunity to see examples of the best quality fashion and design coming out of the Borders in 2019.

Zilla Oddy, museum and gallery assistant for Live Borders, told us: “Building on the rich textile heritage of the area, we are delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening of Borders Textile Towerhouse by showcasing some of the highest quality design and fashion coming out of the Borders today.

"As a charity, Live Borders is proud to celebrate Borders heritage and its impact on local communities."

The Styled in the Borders exhibition runs until October 6 at the Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick.

Opening times are from 10am to 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday, and 12noon to 3pm on Sundays.

Admission is free.
