A New Take on Tweed

14th March 2018

We’ve loved tweed for years and always given it a twist to lift it out of the ordinary. Hand-drawn printed linings, bright trims and mismatched buttons – all have accompanied our traditional tweed styles for years helping them to stand out from the crowd.

This season, we wanted to take our tweed to another level, though this was going to be quite a task – throughout the spring and summer months tweed traditionally takes a step backwards allowing for lighter, brighter fabrics to shine.

However, after (not much) deliberation, someone popped up and said ‘colour’! If we want to turn tweed into a fabric that can be used all year round, all we need to do is add colour. So that’s what we did – we took a bunch of our best-selling bags and crafted them from a new eye-catching tweed fabric.

The Carey Tweed Handbag

Cut from our new summer take on tweed fabric, this useful bag is a day-to-day essential. Complete with a drop in lining and zipped top for extra security.

The Darby Tweed Saddle Bag

This is true tradition with a twist. The saddle bag has been used for years by hunters and fishermen, but we decided it was time to bring it into the 21st century with a few little tweaks. Spacious, stylish, practical and with a printed lining, this bag will become a round-the-clock companion.

The Day to Day Tweed Handbag

Eye-catching and useful is how we’d describe this essential everyday handbag. Made with our latest take on wool tweed, it will add colour and country charm to any outfit. With plenty of pockets for all life’s essentials and the option of a comfortable hand carry strap or detachable shoulder strap it’s versatile too.

The Fairford Tweed Purse

This eye-catching wool tweed purse has a lot going for it, an internal zipped pocket for keeping coins safe, compartments for notes and cards. Just what every handbag needs.

The Trippa Tweed Rucksack

This new bag can be worn as a rucksack or across the body. Crafted from our new tweed fabric and with plenty of details that are just waiting to be discovered.

So if you know someone who still views this heritage fabric as an itchy, stuffy and stodgy – only worn by the English gentry (or aging college professors) send them in our direction – because we do tweed, just not as you know it.
