The need for Tweed – innovative spring accessories for modern day living They’ve done it again – Glasgow based design house Maccessori and Scottish fabric giant Harris Tweed has come up trumps with their latest collection of accessories to liven up your spring wardrobe. And as part of our ethos to work with local quality Scottish brands and designers, the Scotland Kilt Company is delighted to be stocking the latest Cloudberry Collection. The collection contains a striking range of iPhone and iPad soft cases, as well as bifold wallets and folio sleeves in a variety of bold and on-trend colours to match any wardrobe or workday bag. Yellow, red, blue and green - pick your favourite to inject a classic, colourful staple into your everyday wear (or gadget!) that will never go out of fashion. The Cloudberry Collection also includes a range of cute cosmetic bags, wash bags, practical holdalls and cross-over body bags. Collections like these add a new and interesting twist to the Harris Tweed brand which, although a long way from the production levels of the last century, has seen a revival in recent times to an annual production of one million metres (up from 250,000 metres per year). This may be down to the fact that the brand has recently been subject to some headline-grabbing campaigns, including a quirky collaboration in December 2014 with iconic Scotch whiskey Johnnie Walker Black Label to create a ‘fabric of flavour’, where the material smells of whiskey (and can’t be washed out!) The ‘Tweedo’ also made an appearance in men’s accessories – we’ll let you know if we plan on stocking that one any time soon! Mother of Wimbledon champ, Judy Murray, also got in on the act by developing a bespoke tweed for Andy’s hotel Cromlix. Featuring a purple Wimbledon-inspired collection including a clutch bag, toiletry bags, cufflinks and cushion covers, the Cromlix collection is exclusively available from Andy’s hotel, based just outside his hometown of Dunblane. Constantly evolving and adapting to modern living, this is definitely one heritage brand that isn’t going out of style any time soon.
