Scotland firm supplies school jumpers for Harry Potter movie

A fast-growing Scottish textile firm is putting some of its wares on display in front of hundreds of millions of people around the world as the latest Harry Potter blockbuster opens on international cinema screens this summer.

Ayrshire-based Lochaven International will have a supporting role in the fantastically successful movie franchise as the maker of all the school jumpers worn by the pupils of Hogwarts Schools for Wizards, including stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.

The company, which has a factory in Stewarton, has made nearly 400 garments for every one of J K Rowling's Harry Potter movies from the original Philosopher's Stone to the latest Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which premieres in July and trailers of which are available on the internet.

Lochaven managing director Keith Murray said: “It's great that the company has been part of this series of films throughout the years and once again we are very pleased to have manufactured the school jumpers for the entire cast. We also produced the tank tops and cardigans which the different scenes require.”

Lochaven create the garments with detailing on the wrists and waistbands reflecting the different colours of the Hogwarts School houses – burgundy for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff, blue for Ravenclaw and green for Slytherin. Each has 'Lochaven' and 'Made in Scotland' on the label.

To keep up with the changing sizes of the cast and the stars as they grow and develop through the series, the movie's wardrobe department sends back to Lochaven the jumpers used in the previous film. Each has the cast member's name on the label and precise instructions on the changes in size required for the new garment.

Keith said: “It is a complex task, but we have a workforce at Lochaven which is talented, enthusiastic and represents the best skills in the Scottish textile industry. We have been winning lots of new business from companies throughout the world recently and are especially delighted, in this case to have had another chance to showcase Scottish skills and Scottish enterprise in front of a global film audience.”
