New milestone for designer

Feechan opens first Findra retail outlet

Alex Feechan, owner of Findra, the women’s cycle and outdoor clothing brand, is opening her first retail outlet.

She has fulfilled one of her ambitions by taking a unit in the Scottish Borders, regarded as the centre of UK mountain biking. 

The company was established by Ms Feechan in 2014 with support from Scottish Enterprise, Entrepreneurial Spark and Scottish Edge.

She designs cycle and outdoor wear specifically for women and has secured deals to sell her range online.

She  has always envisaged the brand having a retail space and hopes her store in Innerleithen will become a hub for women’s cycling in the area.

Two years ago she signed a deal to collaborate with Wiggle, Europe’s top retailer for cycling and sports clothing.

Last September she secured £200,000 from TRI Capital, Investing Women and The Scottish Investment Bank to fund growth.
