Why Tweed?

As longstanding customers will know, when vantage Atelier launched in 2019, we did so solely with one product: our Henrietta Tweed Skirt.

This skirt is still a best-selling product now, it is perfectly tailored to flatter your figure, and is complete with belt loops to pair with your favourite accessory. But why Tweed?

Tweed is a classic fabric often associated with traditional British fashion, it comes with a number of key advantages, we have highlighted a few that are important to the core principals of Vantage Atelier:

1) Timeless Style – Tweed has a timeless appeal and is known for its classic and elegant look. It has been used in fashion for centuries and is associated with sophistication and heritage. By choosing tweed, VA have created stylish and timeless wardrobe staples that transcend seasonal trends.

2) Natural and Sustainable Material: Wool is renewable and biodegradable, making it an eco-friendly choice. Compared to synthetic fabrics, tweed has a lower chemical footprint in terms of production, having minimal impact on the environment which is a key value for our brand.

3) Durability and Longevity: Tweed is a robust and durable fabric, made from natural wool making it resistant to wear and tear. Tweed garments can withstand frequent use and are less likely to show signs of damage or fading.

4) Investment: Tweed garments are considered investment pieces due to their durability and timeless style. By choosing quality tweed items, you can build a sustainable wardrobe that will last for years, reducing the need for fast fashion purchases. Your Vantage Atelier purchases will hang in your wardrobe for a lifetime if cared for correctly.

At Vantage Atelier we will always appreciate Tweed for these reasons. We are proud to say that all of our Tweed is sourced in Scotland and Yorkshire, and our whole Tweed tailored collection is hand-made here in Great Britain.
