Welcome to Travelling Light – the UK’s leading retailer and manufacturer of hot weather travel clothing and accessories for men and women, all year round.

Summer is finally here and we can look forward to our holidays abroad and lots of sunny days at home. The key to a successful hot weather wardrobe is a selection of cool separates that mix and match to make a range of outfits that encompass a multitude of occasions. This is where our Swiss Cotton range comes into its own. This super-cool 100% cotton has been a Travelling Light favourite for many years. It comes in 12 colours, six styles for women and two for men. It is very light, colour fast, shrink proof, machine washable, quick drying and needs little or no ironing. The perfect holiday fabric!

Choose from short sleeved Sea Shirts, Sea Troos, Sea Skirts, and Sierra Shirtdresses, for women and short sleeved Sea Shirts, and long sleeved Sierra Shirts for men. Our other favourite hot weather cotton is Royal Robbins’ Cool Mesh. This Californian company makes carefree, casual clothes for active travellers that complement our own Travelling Light range perfectly. their 100% cotton Cool Mesh is pre-washed with a loose weave that provides its own ventilation system and a lovely texture. Available in jaunty Capris, easy-fitting short sleeved Shirts, sleeveless Tanks, a Jacket, a very cool sleeveless Dress, and an A-line long Skirt.

Men aren’t left out either, with plain Cool Mesh Shirts, in three colours and one Plaid Cool Mesh Shirt. Travelling Light shops are often in pretty and interesting locations. Our Edinburgh shop, which was part of the backdrop for the period drama, ‘Micawber’ in 2000, is set for a role in the BBC’s ‘North and South’, to be screened later this year. Scenes for Elizabeth Gaskell’s romantic novel, starring Daniela Denby-Ashe, Sinead Cusack and Pauline Quirke, were filmed in May.

We hope you like our current selection. You can view all the items mentioned at our On-line store, in our catalogue or at your nearest shop.
