Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The latest exhibition at Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick showcases the work of the prestigious fashion label Jaggy Nettle.

On display are a range of key fashion pieces for both men and women from past and present collections.

Jaggy Nettle is widely known for its daring approach using traditional Scottish textiles embellished with screen printed slogans and motif to create contemporary and conceptual clothing and accessories.

The exhibition follows the journey from Jaggy Nettle’s inception in 2010 to becoming an internationally recognised fashion brand stocked in the USA, Japan and across Europe.

Based in the Borders since 2003, husband and wife team Jason Lee and Emily Quinn have built up a reputation for quality and edgy design with regular collaborative projects with other designers, brands and charities.

Some of these projects are on display as part of the exhibition, including quirky scarves designed in conjunction with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Both graduated from Edinburgh College of Art and made the move to the Scottish Borders in 2003. This year they will set up the company’s headquarters in a former working textile mill in Hawick - fitting given that high quality fully-fashioned knitwear is at the heart of their business.
