In 1969 Charlie Scott together with his wife and young family, settled in South Africa. Armed with the years of experience gained in the mills of Hawick in Scotland and the local licence for the Pringle of Scotland brand, he began to make inroads into local retail. His knowledge, particularly of knitwear, gained him the reputation of ‘Mr Knitwear’ in South Africa.

Over time the Pringle of Scotland brand gained an enviable reputation both amongst retailers, many of whom to this day are still doing business with the group, as well as discerning and loyal consumers who over generations have come to love and appreciate the quality, style, and innovation associated with the brand.
