Repost from @kill_klem @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost Тут все прекрасно, я считаю. Фотографию и красивую девочку делала моя мама @komazenkova_natalia . Осень - Первомайский парк, душевный зеленый кардиган - плед @vaulkina. Тут я конечно вообще косячник, Настя очень быстро и совершенно точно воплотила в жизнь эту душевную вещицу, а я нося ее практически безвылазно делала фотку пол года. Потому что как оденешь чувствуешь себя комфортно тепло и вообще😊 и фотографироваться не очень лежит. Настя спасибо тебе 🙌

This duo is truly amazing! Can you picture the retro 1960s suit you will create from these?
The heavier piece is quite thick, but being a Boucle Handwoven it has an amazing drape and hand to it not stiff at all...
Wonderful Sage Green with cream, black and orange flecks woven throughout.
This piece is marked with a tag "Made in Dublin by the Handwoven Tweed Specialists O'Beirne +Fitzgibbon Ltd. "makers of good clothes"
The lighter weight piece matches the Sage Green and is also a Handwoven with a lovely drape. Not marked but they came together.
I am unsure of the exact fiber content as I purchased this from the estate of a professional dressmaker.
This is a story about tweed, a dream of adventure, a weaver, and a bag designer.
It's a story about the stories carried in the things we wear. And it's about creativity, craft, community, and connection.
I had wanted to visit the Western Isles of Scotland for a long time after hearing stories of tropical beaches from my Granny.
Several years ago I treated myself to some tweed in Edinburgh, having been in love with Harris Tweed for an equally long time.
After a small handwritten label on the bolt of fabric had caught my eye, I'd made a mental note of where it had been woven - Luskentyre.
I went home, hopped on google, and soon discovered the incredible story of Luskentyre's master weaver Donald John Mackay MBE and how his work with Nike catapulted Harris Tweed into the stratosphere and opened it up to a younger generation.
This summer my dream came true and I visited the beautiful Isles of Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides!
Of course Luskentyre, its heavenly beach, and Donald John's shed were pretty promptly put on the holiday wish list!
And what a joy it was to walk the landscape that inspired the birth of this little piece of fabric and to meet the weaver whose feet had walked it into existence!
Back home and reminiscing the adventure, I stumbled across Lewis bag designer and maker, Sandra from @madebymodren via social media.
With her warmth, her attention to detail, her real dedication to her craft, and her own family connection to Harris Tweed, I knew she would be the perfect person to create a bag for me from that piece of tweed.
And so within no time at all, it migrated back home and was crafted into something I can use and treasure for a lifetime. Practical Beauty (with a golden trace of its Gaelic history secretly inserted inside). I love it.
