Inspired by the sometimes leaden skies above our mill we have a new Lead Grey colour in our unique heavyweight PlasmaDry corduroy. It’s a rich and soft cloth from our local suppliers and may claim to be one the finest corduroys in the world. With its water resistance and luxury weight, it’s the perfect garment to see us into winter.
Cord has quite an amazing history – starting as a workwear fabric during the Industrial Revolution. And later becoming a ‘royal fabric’ then a mark of the academic left wing of the 60’s. Now our friends in the know say it’s become rather rakish again.
The one thing we know for sure is that it is a deep and beautiful colour and will make some stunning four pocket jackets.
