Harrisons of Edinburgh was founded in 1863 by Sir George Harrison who began his career as an apprentice with an Edinburgh tailor. His first business venture was with a partner, establishing a business of wool drapers, hatters and hosiers in 1838. Twenty five years later he bought out an existing firm of woollen merchants, J & A Ogilvy, changing the name to what is known today as "Harrisons of Edinburgh".
