Heritage Wool And Tweed Collection

Brought exclusively to us from 

Lovat Mill - the home of tweed

We have long been huge fans of the beautiful, home spun tweeds produced at Lovat Mill in the Scottish Border town of Hawick, so when we were looking to expand our fabric collection, who better to ask to design us some unique cheques and herringbone designs for our talented soft furnishings team to make into stunning lampshades, curtains and blinds.

Rugged and Refined

 Perfect for country style

Known as the ‘Home of Tweed,’ Hawick is renowned the world over the quality of its tweeds, where artisan craftsmen follow in the footsteps of generations of tweed makers to create beautiful, contemporary cloth.

Historically, tweed has always been made in natural, earthy colours as it was used for hunting, shooting and fishing. A hardy close weave, the fabric is as tough as it is attractive, both rugged and refined – a perfect amalgamation for country style.

In the same way as we approach design, Lovat Mill takes inspiration from the rich colours of the surrounding countryside.

Inspired by our surroundings

“Tweed may be one of Scotland's great gifts to the world, but it has never cut its ties with home where it is still very much a great source of pride,” says Lovat Mill Director Stephen Rendle.

"For us, it's all about following in the footsteps of previous generations of tweed makers. You know we are passionate about nurturing traditional skills when it comes to manufacturing, so to have the opportunity support another heritage craft is very important to us.”

Our Collection

Our Lovat Mill fabrics incorporate between five and forty individual colours to produce a range of specially selected herringbones and checks that will add subtle reflections of the natural world to your interiors. 

Understanding the provenance of our products is crucial to appreciating their quality, so knowing the rich background of these fabrics makes them all the more beautiful. Adding texture and colour to your home decor in this way doesn’t get much better than that.
