A worker checks spinning machines, that twist fibres of cashmere together to give them strength and wind them onto bobbins, at Scottish textiles company Johnstons in Elgin, Scotland May 20, 2008. Faced with the threat of cheap outsourcing and mass manufacturing, the 211-year old Johnstons family-owned firm has shifted focus from supplying the high street to providing instead top quality fabric and garments for luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Channel, and Hugo Boss.
