OVER 200 YEARS OF HISTORY TO BUILD ON

Originally founded in 1789 by a rope and sail maker from Leith, the business served a very buoyant local fishing industry by manufacturing rope and hand sewn sails. James Paton took over the business in the early 1900s and to this day, the Paton family continue to prepare handcrafted products. Over the years, our company has grown with that very same passion and care to become one of the oldest and dynamic independent companies in Scotland.

 

TRADITIONAL QUALITY CRAFTMANSHIP

We are a traditional company and family run business that has embraced the 21st century yet guarantees a personal touch. Having invested in new cutting edge technology, we continue to design and produce handmade products for this century that are built to last. Manufactured here in our factory in Scotland and shipped worldwide, our growing international reputation has seen our products turn up in the strangest of places like Mount Kilimanjaro. Whether we are supplying one bag, 1000 bags or all weather protection for part of an oil rig, the care, service and pride never changes.
