Linton Tweeds


Linton Tweeds has been manufacturing tweed fabric since 1912 when Scotsman William Linton started the mill in the Caldewgate area of Carlisle, a small city situated close to the Scottish border and near the famous Lake District. William Linton’s great friend, Captain Molyneux, was a Parisian couturier who in the 1920’s introduced him to a dynamic young lady called Coco Chanel. This began an association which has flourished over the years resulting in the house of Chanel being Linton’s biggest and most prestigious customer. Since then Linton’s has supplied the houses of Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, John Rocha, Victoria Beckham and Thakoon worn by Michelle Obama.
