Tweed upholstered chairTweed fabric is mainly made of wool and has a closely woven, rough open texture. It often has a check pattern and can be either plain weave or twill weave, the latter being a characteristic diagonal pattern type of tweed fabric.

Tweed cloth was originally produced in Scotland but it has little to do with the renowned River Tweed, a Scottish Borders river. An iconic Scottish tweed of today is Harris Tweed Fabric. Harris tweed must be woven in the Outer Hebrides and its production is protected by an Act of Parlaiment.

Tweeds including Standard Tweed and Harris Tweed are desireable for informal outerwear. The fabric is naturally moisture resistant and very durable. Additional popular uses for tweed fabric are curtains and upholstery. There is also demand for it on handbags, dog coats, shoes, amplifiers, etc.
