From the Scots for twill, the word tweel was used in Scotland to describe the rough, woollen fabric being produced there. As the story has it, in around 1830 a London merchant, receiving a letter about tweels and unable to decipher the handwriting, assuming that the mysterious product was in fact a trade-name from the river Tweed which flows through the Scottish Borders textile area, began advertising tweel as tweed – and the name stuck.
Available world-wide, tweed is as popular now as it’s ever been, with a number of the latest designers incorporating this traditional material into their lines.
