Begg & Co

Begg & Co was founded by Alex Begg in 1866 in the industrious Scottish town of Paisley, then a focal point for the Scottish weaving industry and today best known for that iconic pattern of the same name. There, on the banks of a River Clyde tributary, the first Begg shawls came into being, inspired by Scotland’s textural landscape, lochs and seas and hand-loomed by a small team of local weavers. The earliest surviving paisley shawls, both woven in the 1860s, are beautiful and finely crafted – one on display in the Paisley Museum, for all to admire, and the other privately owned by a member of the Begg family.
