British sporting life inspired these plaids, tweeds, twills, and matte velvets
BassamFellows drew inspiration from British sporting life and touring cars for their Brighton Collection. Two plaids, featuring a complexity of colors, would look right at home in the interior of one of the veteran autos in the annual London to Brighton car run; a pair of tweeds channel the spirit of classic British sporting attire; a rugged, hard-wearing twill and a noble velvet balance out the collection.
Adding to the core of staples available from Geiger Textiles, Classic Velvet features a non-directional pile designed for easy maintenance and to be cool to the touch, making it suitable for all climates. Its 100 percent polyester content offers the performance of contract textiles and the matte look of a cotton velvet.Classic Velvet Spec Sheet
Designed to complement Twill Plaid, Essential Twill expands options for designers looking to create integrated environments. Its eight colorways pick up the highlights and background colors used in Twill Plaid. Reminiscent of World War II raincoats, this beautiful basic twill reads as a solid, but offers a subtle bi-color effect.Essential Twill Spec Sheet
BassamFellows drew the pattern for their elegant plaids, Pick-Stitch Plaid and Twill Plaid, by hand. On both, squares start small, then grow along both horizontal and vertical axes. This non-directional nature allows almost unlimited variety in application, with no right or wrong way to lay them out. The dressier of the two plaids, Pick-Stitch has a more refined background, its namesake broken-line stitch pattern calling to mind fine bespoke tailoring.Pick-Stitch Plaid Spec Sheet
One of two hand-drawn and custom-colored plaids designed by BassamFellows for the collection, Twill Plaid is larger in scale and sportier than Pick-Stitch. Both patterns start small, with squares that grow along both horizontal and vertical axes. A distinctive twill weave also adds a diagonal twist to Twill Plaid, helping it feel more dynamic than uniform in application. It’s the “weekend wear” plaid of the Brighton Collection.Twill Plaid Spec Sheet
Made in New Zealand from ultra-soft, locally sourced wool, this multicolored woolen fabric is reminiscent of Donegal tweed, characterized by bright flecks of color randomly woven throughout. Originating in Ireland and Scotland, the first tweeds were handwoven using a classic basket weave construction. Our Wool Tweed exemplifies industrialized craft, using modern loom technology to create a handwoven aesthetic, in seven fresh colorways that brings newness to this archetypal construction.Wool Tweed Spec Sheet
