Homeland of classical tweed fabric produced from sheep wool is justly considered to be Scotland with its cold and windy climate. That is why hard and heavy tweed was originally meant to protect from cold, wind and drizzle and, besides, was considered to be only a men’s hard-wearing fabric. It’s worthy of note that world-famous Scotch kilts are also produced from this material.
In course of time tweed ceased to be a fabric only for men and gained popularity with the fair sex, for whom this hard-wearing and warm material was necessary.
From the 20s of the last century and up to now tweed clothes stay on the catwalks of the world and their popularity keeps growing. The tweed clothes are preferred by many celebrities. However, stock of tweed items hasn’t changed during this period of time. As before, it is used mainly for production of jackets, suits, waistcoats and coats, skirts and trousers, shorts. Tweed shorts are always in trend as well as tweed headwears (hats and caps), bags and shoes. Tweed combines with leather, fur, knitted fabric, laces and beads perfectly, its composition is often complemented with lurex. It makes clothes more multi-purpose, comfortable and hard-wearing.
