About HOMESPUN True Tales of Tweed
TWEEDS have stories to tell - of toil and privilege, of imagination and sheer will, of fortunes made and empires lost. This cloth of distinction is steeped in tradition yet adopted by each generation as its own, ever modern and new. It’s been hand loomed for village tailors and grand couture houses. It’s been fashioned into garments for beggars and kings. Here are those stories from the men and women, the designers and artisans, whose inescapable destinies have been intertwined with tweed. From the haunting landscapes of Scotland to the dynamic prefectures of Japan, from the soundstages of Hollywood to the footlights of Broadway, from the cobblestone streets of London to the towering skyscrapers of New York City, it’s a journey into the distant past, a look into the future, and the road to coming back home.
