The Sassenach design has been inspired by the story of the Great Glen Company and founder Sam Heughan.
Sassenach is a historic Scottish term meaning English person or Lowland Scot. Sam, a Scottish actor, has become synonymous with the phrase where both on screen and off-screen he makes use of it as a term of endearment.
Sam also refers to himself as a Sassenach, as he was born in 1980 in Dumfries which is a part of lowland Scotland. The threadcounts of the tartan reflect meaningful dates and times for the company whilst adopting a subtle black and grey colour palette gracefully marrying four shades inspired by Scotland’s dark landscape - from rigid natural rock formations to the heavy skies rolling in the glens.
