tweed. vintage English tweed. purchased in London after the war by Emily's grandparents with the intent to make a dress for her and a suit for him. the dress was made, but they ran out of money before making the suit. and so the tweed sat. when her grandparents passed away recently, Emily wanted to see the tweed go to a good home, where it would be used and appreciated. eventually, she came to see me at my studio and presented to me this gorgeous, thick, substantial tweed. tweed that looks and feels like it was woven to withstand the elements. plainweave with flecks of red, yellow, and white. my most prized fabric.
