Marling & Evans

leave a comment »

A little while ago we took a trip to the Cotswolds to meet with Richard at Marling & Evans. When we source cloth we like to find UK mills with real heritage and this place has got it by the bucketful. We spent a fruitful afternoon looking through the stockbooks and sourced a great Saxony Tweed and a show-stopping Indigo Check cotton for our Harringtons here. On site they also have an interesting museum of the history of weaving and some original looms – we took a few snaps on the day. The Marling & Evans cloth has been shaped into the 2 Harringtons which are in stock now.
