Moorbrook Textiles Ltd., a Scotland based textile producing firm has inked a £600k deal with UK's iconic fashion label Daks to supply custom-made scarves under Daks label for next three years.

The Scottish firm, comprising Alex Begg & Company, Robert Noble and Replin Fabrics, produces woven textile products at its manufacturing plants in Ayr and Peebles.

Cathy Black, Head of Textiles, Moorbrook Textiles Ltd said the continued growth and inking of the deal clearly points towards good quality of the goods being produced by the firm.
