Handmade in Scotland. Named after the highest mountain in the Scottish Highlands, Ben Alder began in 1991, when Sergio Beccuti, an italian knitwear designer fascinated by all things Scots, decided to travel through the villages of Scotland in search of ways to combine his Italian taste in fashion with the native Scottish colors, patterns, and smells he'd come to love. His goal was and still is to work only with traditional looms and small factories and to use the highest quality virgin wool. The result? Ben Alder's knit accessories are as eye-opening as the Scottish landscape and cozy enough to keep you warm, whether you're hiking the Scottish Highlands or simply running errands at home!
