HAWICK Knitwear has been named the official knitwear supplier for Glasgow footballing giants Rangers.
Fans of the Teddy Bears the length and breadth of the world will be able to support their team with products which have been made at the Liddesdale Road factory.
Along with classic lambswool crew and vee neck sweaters, highlights of the collection are an exclusive Argyle design which has been created based on Rangers’ club colours, and a modern cardigan inspired by the club’s nine-in-a-row team who wore charcoal waistcoats as part of their matchday uniform.
Hawick Knitwear managing director Benny Hartop said: “We are very proud of our luxury knitwear, most notably our British Wool; the idea that these products are British – ‘from sheep to shelf’, has captured the imagination of all who are aware of supporting our own local industries and keeping alive the Made In Britain name.”
He added: “Be assured that all Hawick Knitwear products are wholly manufactured in Hawick, Scotland in our own factory by our highly-trained, skilled staff, we never import goods from Asia or overseas, and you can feel safe that, like Rangers, our sweaters are very much the Best of British.”
Mr Hartop revealed the company has already been busy completing orders.
The collection was shot entirely within Ibrox Stadium, featuring access to the trophy room, directors blue room, and even the home dressing room.
The Scottish League One side is currently at the top of the table, having won every league match so far this season.
And former star striker and club ambassador Mark Hateley believes they are onto another winner thanks to their association with Hawick Knitwear.
He said: “This collection, like Rangers Football Club, is built on time honoured Scottish values of history, tradition and unbeatable quality.
“The sweaters are modern classics which will stand the test of time, just like our great club.”
The sweaters are available to buy on the internet via http://www.hawickknitwear.com/ , and trade sales can contact Hawick Knitwear directly on 363100.
