Brora

Fashioning a Brighter Future

We meet Victoria Stapleton, Founder & Creative Director of Brora. Brora undertook an ambitious expansion strategy, and in the process formed a close working partnership with Barclays.

Established in 1993 Brora produce beautiful, classic clothing made from the finest Scottish cashmere in uniquely blended colours.

With a desire to expand the business, it was critical that Brora moved to a larger site outside of London.

Barclays has supported us, wherever we’re going.

Founder & Creative Director, Brora

Barclays provided debt to fund the move, allowing Victoria the space to house a design room, pattern cutting room, photographic studio and larger warehouse.

The relationship between Barclays and Brora continues to flourish - with Victoria speaking at various Barclays’ events to impart her knowledge and experience of running a very British design and retail business in today's competitive market.
