The Glasshouse has partnered with leading Edinburgh kiltmakers Gordon Nicholson for bespoke staff uniforms and a unique clothing range.

The five-star 77-room luxury hotel, part of the YTL Hotels group, has announced the partnership as part of their 20th Anniversary celebrations. Both staff and guests will have the chance to own one-of-a-kind tartan exclusively designed for The Glasshouse, with new staff uniforms and clothing available for guests to purchase. 

Tying in the values and history of Gordon Nicholson, The Glasshouse and YTL Hotels, the tartan combines the colours of the Scottish and Malaysian flag, nodding to the Scottish heritage of The Glasshouse and the Malaysian roots of YTL Hotels, which has a wider collection of luxury properties dotted across Asia.
As part of this partnership, staff at The Glasshouse hotel will have the bespoke tartan design incorporated into their uniforms; including on ties, bow ties, rose pins and even kilts for the concierges. Branded with the YTL logo, these items will also be on sale for guests at the hotel to buy so that they can take a slice of Scotland (and Malaysia) home with them.
Andrew Jordan, Vice President of YTL Hotels in the UK says, "We are delighted to be partnering with Gordon Nicholson Kiltmakers to celebrate The Glasshouse's 20th anniversary. Championing local brands and paying tribute to YTL's heritage is of huge importance to us, so this new partnership with one of most renowned kiltmakers in the industry is a great match, and aligns with YTL's values of luxury and culture. This unique tartan combines the colours of the Scottish and Malaysian flags, and we're so proud to bring this celebration of local culture and YTL Hotels heritage to life."

Gordan Nicholson Kiltmakers also comment, “I was honoured to be asked to create such a memorable piece to celebrate this milestone anniversary. It was important to me to incorporate the connection between the YTL Hotels and their passion for Scotland, combining both countries' flag colours, with a traditional Scottish tartan design. The finished product celebrates this connection and has been well received by guests. Retail items will soon be available for purchase at the hotel, so guests can take a fond memory home with them upon their departure from Edinburgh”.

While The Glasshouse is soon to be known for its custom Tartan it is already renowned for its whisky offering. The hotel’s award-winning snug provides over 160 Scotch whiskies for guests to enjoy whilst cosied up next a roaring fire, as well as offering a delicious selection of small plates for a light supper and a traditional afternoon tea with a Scottish twist.
