A strong fabric made from carded wool, of Scottish origins, with a porous feel and medium weight. It was originally created in black and grey shades with a herringbone weave, nowadays produced in different textures, such as the houndstooth, checked, over-checked and in many shades, including traditional Scottish Tartans. Through time, from the classic tweeds, many fabrics were created. The Harris Tweed from the Harris Island, made famous by the Countess of Dunmore, this tweed has contrasting light and dark shades and is different from the classical tweed because it is less refined. The Donegal, originally from the county of Donegal in Ireland, is characterised by colourful buttons contrasting with the background colour.
