Inspired by the beauty of the rolling hills and the dramatic moorlands of the Scottish Borders, this collection takes its name from the locality.
Home to Holland & Sherry, the Scottish Borders has a longstanding association with tweed fabric, which was primarily developed within the region of the Tweed river. The river had a rich source of minerals that made the water soft; it also had very few impurities, making it an ideal water source for finishing the fabric after the weaving process. This pure, mineral-rich water is still used for the same purpose today and is the reason why traditional Scottish tweed continues to enjoy a worldwide reputation.
The attraction of tweed lies in its wonderful colourations. These are achieved by blending together several different colours in one yarn. Once the yarn is interlaced to create the woven fabric, up to six colours can be present in the ground cloth, imbuing the cloth with its special, enchanting vibrancy.
The designs of this comprehensive collection draw on the lasting appeal of a traditional, authentic cloth, capturing the essence of classic tweed whilst incorporating a contemporary colour palette. Warm and soft to touch, attractive to look at and durable, contemporary yet traditional, this classic collection of fabric from the Tweed Valley is the ultimate tweed.
