How To Celebrate Robert Burns Day: Scottish Made Fashion
Robert Burns Day
Burn's Day is a yearly celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), the author of many Scottish poems and globally known for writing the song 'Auld Lang Syne' often sung on New Years Eve. With Christmas and New Year’s out of the way, Scotland prepares to host its first national celebration of 2023, Burns Night.
Traditional Scottish attire and flashes of tartan are often spotted at a Burns Dinner in celebration of the Scottish poet and culture. Oliami Founder Nadia's own brand, Bearco, is a true celebration of Scottish heritage and manufacturing. The brand has partnered with multiple Scottish businesses to create heritage garments that are timeless classics with a modern twist. The wool textile is spun and woven in Scotland, and the pieces are all made and finished by hand in one of Scotland’s last remaining luxury manufacturers - Alexander Manufacturing (Scotland). Bearco proudly sits alongside Hancock of Scotland, another brand bursting with Scottish Heritage and expert craftsmanship. Makers of the 100% waterproof, vulcanised articles. What better way to celebrate Burn’s Night than wearing a piece of handcrafted, Scottish luxury?
If you have never been to a Burns Night gathering before, bear in mind that it is about dressing up and celebrating Scotland. It is one of the events where people get the opportunity to express their Scottish cultural identity. Over time it has become a custom to wear tartan and formal wear is typical.
