An exclusive tweed poncho ... completely our own creation, has been hand cut and hand tailored in England from finest British tweed.
It is fully reversible, cleverly allowing it to be worn either side - for two different looks.
Add to this that we produce this piece in tiny numbers and you have something very special indeed.
THE FABRIC Two very special fabrics have been used:
One Side- a Harris tweed hand woven in the beautiful Outer Hebridean islands just off mainland Scotland, in a plain deep blue, herringbone weave in 100% pure wool; and
The Other Side- our exclusive navy/charcoal House tweed, that we have exclusively woven for us in a British mill and cannot be obtained from anywhere else in the world, again in 100% pure wool. The background colour is a perfect 50/50 blend of navy and charcoal, with a lovely over check featuring pale duck egg blue, navy and black.
THE DESIGN Versatile, easy to wear and extremely stylish our tweed poncho features a flip over collar that is elegant, unique and frames the face well, whilst allowing the tweed on the underside to show through. The poncho flows down the body to a triangular point, which is very flattering and slims and elongates the figure. Made of 2 layers of British tweed in 100% pure wool, this poncho is also surprisingly warm and will definitely keep out the chill. THE DETAILING Real horn buttons run down the side of the poncho (on both sides of the fabric) and are fully functional. Being real horn, each button has its on distinctive markings and no two buttons are the same - giving a high end finish.
These horn buttons are especially designed and manufactured for us, adding to their desirability.
Harris tweed is a unique cloth that has been dyed, spun and handwoven in the Outer Hebrides - a small chain of remote and rugged islands just off the western coast of Scotland. It is still handwoven by villagers in their own cottages on traditional manual handlooms, as it has been for hundreds of years.
Harris tweed is protected by a British Act of Parliament. Every 50 metres of cloth has to be certified by an official from the Harris Tweed Authority, to prove that is genuine Harris tweed - only then can it bear the official Orb symbol of the Harris Tweed Authority.
It has been the cloth of choice for well dressed British ladies and gentlemen for centuries and is favoured by British aristocrats, the British royal family, and more recently, top designers and retailers such as Paul Smith and Hugo Boss.
OUR HOUSE TWEED Our House tweed is exclusive. It is a 100% pure wool tweed that we have designed ourselves and worked closely with a British mill to weave for us. It is woven just for us and cannot be obtained from anywhere else in the world. We have it produced in small runs of a few hundred meters at a time.
