The tweed is a classic fabric, thanks to Coco Chanel. Today’s post was made especially to honor one of the most iconic pieces of the most famous stylist in the world:the tweed coat. The fabric originates from the Scottish region of the Tweed River, which was the great textile center of the nineteenth century. The tweed has a rough texture, and can be made entirely of wool or with a mixture of other fabrics, with colored patterns. Since the late nineteenth century, it was used to make coats and suits . In the 1960s, it was replaced by lighter fabrics, but resurfaced in the 1990s.
