I got this in my recommended reading this week. It was lovely to see something on weaving and the culture that keeps it alive – I was bemused by the speedy rounding up of how and why it still prevails today.
While it may be considered another school of thought, I would say that the prevelence and resilience of tweed in the current fasion market, owes much more to Bernat Klein than to anyone else.
No doubt the beauty and endurance of tweed speaks for itself – up to a point. But the “salesman” who brought it back to the public eye and firmly placed it front and centre, to remain an important component of modern fashion, was Klein.
