Sales of Scottish textiles in China soar

The sale of Scottish fabrics to the Chinese market is to reach a record high, after exports totalled £9.7m in the first nine months of 2013.

The figure beats the total amount of Scottish textiles exported to China in 2012.

Scotland now sells two and a half times more fabric to China than it did a decade ago, according to the FT, with Chinese customers particularly enthusiastic about the heritage and tradition of Scottish-made products.  

As reported by Drapers in November accessories brand Strathberry of Scotland launched in two stores in Shanghai and Beijing earlier this month.

Managing director Guy Hundleby said at the time that the move had “huge potential” for the brand.
