The Bruichladdich Poplet
This fantastic lightweight tweed is woven on the Isle of Islay by commission of the Bruichladdich Distillery. The colours are beautiful. The drape is better than beautiful. We have taken the marine blue & lichen gold check with its statement white stripe & lined it with a gorgeous purple & gold shot silk that catches the light with its raw silk fibres. Paired with gold effect magnets to complete the look.
Traditional Cornish Poplet
A devious tartan that is not Scottish but the traditional cloth of Cornwall! It’s celtic roots tell the tale of Saint Piran, who travelled from Ireland and became the Patron of tin in the peninsula (you will notice the black square with the white cross – mimicking the Cornish flag). This is a very light weight kilt wool in a plain drill weave. The colour of the main body is a bright & beautiful yellow (representing the gorse of the countryside), with a dash of sea blue & red to complete the check.
We have matched this tartan with one of our softest linings – a light weight sandwash silk in a lustrous shade of mauve. This ties the strong colours of the outer fabric together beautifully and feels incredible against your skin.
The lining is the real character of this piece – a lightweight tana lawn cotton by Liberty of London in a fantastic array of pink tones, creating an exotic jungle scene.
We have matched with this a chunky herringbone weave that is heavy weight but loosely woven creating a fantastic drape. The flecks of yellow, green & blue in the tweed give a soft
overall tone with pops of colour on close inspection.
