Touch of Tweed

Young entrepreneurs and partners, Catherine and James, launched Touch of Tweed as an amalgamation of their upbringings in the British countryside and coastal areas having spotted a niche for garments that would stay true to their heritage but would fit in with the best of the country and coastal fashion.

The collection is popular with equestrian, country and coastal folk and all those who are keen to move away from fast unethical fashion. Offering high quality, unique, British garments that are built to last, and are kind to the environment the duo are spreading the word for consumers to buy once, buy well and buy British.

Only the finest fabrics are used in their products, and every piece of tweed is 100% British; coming from small mills in Yorkshire. Quality is of utmost importance, which is apparent in each garment due to the luxurious feel of the fabric and craftsmanship. Organic cotton and British Tweed combined together in a way that no other brand has done before makes this brand really unique.

PROVENANCE

Our garments are made in Sheffield by the talented team at Hall UK Manufacturing; made with proper manufacturing techniques by local ladies and gentlemen. We are proud to be able to trace our steps to production and share this journey with you.

You will help bring back British manufacturing to the forefront of the World map and give us a fighting chance to get our foot in the vast fashion industry door, leading the way for small brands rather than High Street big boys!

Our Tweed is British Tweed made in Yorkshire and has been ever since 1837, where bales of raw wool arrived at the mill's doorstep to begin the process of creating beautiful fabrics. The mill; Moons, has been passed on from generation to generation, and has won awards for it's contribution to the British export economy.

Moons are one of the last few remaining vertical mills in Britain, and take care to ensure that quality is measured at every stage of the production process. They are members of the British National Committee of the International Wool Textile Organisation for Animal Health, and adhere to REACh standards (EU regulations that protect human health and the environment from chemical risks).

Moons also take environmental sustainability seriously, and are continuously investing in new machinery that is water efficient and new ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

We use 100% organic cotton from Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified mills. This is the world's leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain, through environmental and social responsibility.

Our cotton is sourced from a small family-ran business in Wales, and was founded by a couple called Phil and Ann who, after selling fabric for over 30 years, decided to launch The Organic Textile Company in 2005. Their daughter, Nancy, now runs all the operations, and manages the fabric production which comes from certified mills in India and Turkey.

They became aware of the damage of pesticides, and the number of deaths it causes each year, and so by allowing them to farm organically, the farmers are able to live a more prosperous and healthy life that allows crop rotation and non reliance on pesticide and fertiliser sellers. By supporting this way of life, farmers are able to keep animals and grow food instead of purchasing expensive chemicals and fertilisers, and therefore receive more pay for their crops.

The Organic Textile company also run a small charity called Loom, where some of their profits are returned to the weavers they work with in Kerela, and they also redistribute 10% of profits to their employees as well as supporting local initiatives such as offering interest free loans to local businesses.
