HOMESPUN: TRUE TALES OF TWEED

Overview

Tweeds have stories to tell: of toil and priviledge, 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 landsapes of Scotland to the dynamic prefectures of Japan; from the soundstages of Hollywood to the footlightes of Broadway; from the historic 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.
