Emma Brown Tweed
If you head to your local shoot, point-to-point or National Hunt race course, the chances are there will be tweed on show, and plenty of it! The iconic tightly woven and dyed wool fabric has become the uniform of the countryside for very good reason – it is breathable, warm, water resistant and very lightweight for a natural, sustainable fabric. Tweed has been the go-to fabric for those who work and play in the British outdoors for over 150 years, but in recent years it has become a style essential too, perfectly acceptable for country weddings and work meetings alike.
Emma Brown Tweed craft glorious British tweed clothing at their Leicestershire base, and are proud to combine the practicality of this heritage fabric with some ingenious and feminine designs. Founded by a true country lass with her roots firmly in agriculture and the rural lifestyle, the full Emma Brown Tweed collection includes waistcoats, capes, shooting vests, breeks, skirts, coats and smocks in a range of British tweeds and with beautiful detailing, as well as a capsule equine collection and checked country dresses.
The saying ‘no tweed in town’ really only ever applied to London, but it is now simply not the case anywhere! Emma Brown Tweed’s versatile Loader Skirt and Poaching Coat are both perfect examples – they are carefully designed with myriad features that mean they are ideal for wearing in the field, but they are also so eye-catching and pretty that they are the perfect choice for a sociable weekend in London too. If you’re on the hunt for stylish, practical tweed and country clothing that will take you from the shooting field to a wedding and beyond, the Emma Brown Tweed website is a wonderful place to spend a little time browsing…
