What is Marling & Evans Tweed?
Marling Evans was founded in the 16th century and quickly became one of the most important production sites in West England. Already in the 18th century, the distinguished gentleman Tweed was wearing Marling Evans. In the 19th century the factory was built, which produces completely vertically, i.e. all production steps take place on one level after another. In the heart of Huddersfield, which must be seen as the centre of Yorkshire's textile industry, Marling Evans stands as a modern, highly innovative weaving company that continues to produce classic tweeds, but quite different.
the natural story
Marling & Evans weave tweed without dyeing it. Inspired by the desire to produce tweed without any environmental impact, they have developed a process to weave colors and structures into the fabric. Through a melange of different, different types of wool, they create unique patterns. In doing so, they use the black and white colour of Jacob's sheepskin and the deep black color of Welsh Black. The largest variety of colours, however, is the Shetland sheep: black, brown, grey melange and beige melange, to name but a few.
The Tweed wool is not chemically treated or dyed at all. Only natural soap is used in finishing. Not only is Marling Evans' Tweed particularly sustainable due to its durability, but it also meets the increasingly important environmental criteria in manufacturing.
