This tweed fabric is mostly made of alpaca wool renowned for its durability, warmth and soft feel. Crafted in a black color, it also contains grey fibers which together create a beautiful textured surface with tiny loops and curls. This soft tweed is decorated with all-over embroidery featuring satin stitch handbags, each one topped off with a sparkling Swarovski rhinestone.
Jakob Schlaepfer, the Swiss manufacturer of high quality premium fabrics, offers multiple variations of embroidery on wool. Such one-of-a-kind designs are ideal for comfortable dresses, jackets and skirts that expand your femininity. Combine them with silk chiffon or crepe de chine, or cotton batiste and poplin to bring on some contrast – a silk blouse or a cotton shirt will make your look complete! Another tip: pair it up with plain tweed (54320) to create a two-piece suit.

Classic tweed fabric is a medium to heavy weight wool cloth created by twill or plain weave with thick untwisted fibers. Wool tweed has become famous for its application in classic men’s suits and coats, however, no less legendary is tweed boucle - the women’s version of this fabric introduced by Coco Chanel in the 1950s.
Some call it 'tweed', some prefer the term 'boucle', but what is meant is a type of textured fabric woven with fancy yarn, lurex threads, trims, ribbons and so on. Solid or full of color, it is perfect for women’s suits, skirts, jackets and coats. Tweed boucle fabrics are soft and elegant and bring a timeless aesthetic to any wardobe.
High quality tweed fabrics are created by such distinguished European manufacturers as Clarenson, Ruffo Coli, Grosber, Carnet, Malhia Kent and Jakob Schlaepfer.
