FINDRA is based in the heart of the beautiful and historic Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders where the River Tweed was used to power the woollen mills that transformed wool from sheep on nearby hills into cloth and knitwear for export around the World.
The mills may no longer be active, but the hills that feed the Tweed now have a network of forests, woodland and moors that form a network of paths, trails and roads for walking, mountain biking and cycling. The combination of textile history, outdoor beauty and physical activity is very much the inspiration behind FINDRA and our range of clothing.
VISIT IN PERSON
Based in what used to be the original Police station in Innerleithen with views to the hills, FINDRA draws on the history of woollen textiles in the valley and brings things up to date with clothing suitable for today’s active lifestyles with garments made locally and within the UK where possible. All business operations and customer service are conducted from our Innerleithen Design Hub and the FINDRA shop is open 6-days a week.
THE TWEED VALLEY
The Tweed Valley has been transformed in recent times into a thriving destination for mountain biking and other activities and is a truly amazing place to visit if you enjoy the outdoors. We’re proud to play our part in the transformation and thoroughly recommend a visit, no matter the time of year – and if you do visit, why not check dates for FINDRA social rides and runs and let us show you around.
