Wear a mini wool artwork around your neck and redefine dapper…

These vibrant limited edition ties have the style chops to accompany you and a sharp suit to a formal event, or pair well with a wool V-neck and jeans when you’re feeling a little less fancy.  Either way, you get to stand out and feel proud about supporting a genuine craftsman.

And due to the unique construction method used by James, no two pieces are alike. How often do you get the chance to wear – or gift – a true original?

Each piece is hand woven from pleasingly robust merino lambswool using a mix of twill structures, then carefully hand finished, washed and air-dried.

James Donald

Textile Designer and Weaver

A weaver for over 20 years, James Donald truly is a man of the cloth. After studying textiles at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, he explored Australia before setting up PickOne in 1997 to hand-weave sumptuous fabric for clothing and occasional home wares collections.

At the core of his method is a creative marriage between contemporary technology and traditional hand-weaving techniques. The 32 shafts on his computerised loom allow him to showcase more complex designs in a wide range of yarns. Most recently, his collections have been exclusively crafted in merino lambswool.

James’ inspiration is fuelled by the rich textures and sweeping vistas of Scottish land and seascapes, particularly in the Outer Hebrides, the Shetland Islands and the highlands of Scotland. Combine these with a sharp eye for colour and texture trends, and you have textiles to sigh for.

'I enjoy weaving for the flow of process from one row to the next, observing the cloth grow before me in a repetitive, meditative and rhythmic action.

I build on elements of structure and scale to develop subtle differences between each collection, so one collection evolves into the next in a fairly organic process. What’s fantastic is that the computerised loom means I can retain designs from years ago and go back to reinterpret them.'
