Made by Cotswold woollen weavers. 

Cotswold Woollen Weavers has been in Filkins designing and making fine woollen cloth since 1982.

Cotswold Woollen Weavers live and breathe the wool heritage that made the English Cotswolds, and draw our inspiration from the soft colours of the Cotswold landscape all around us.

Cotswold Woollen Weavers believe that virtue lies in the tradition of doing things well, and that we can learn from those who went before us.

Cotswold Woolen Weavers also believe that innovation is good too (and also fun) so long as it is based firmly on finding ways to do good things better.

The history of woollen cloth-making in Gloucestershire is a long and honourable one, and is woven into the very fabric of our Cotswold landscape. Cotswold Woollen Weavers have designed this new check to celebrate our glorious Gloucestershire wool heritage.

Cotswold woollen weavers are inspired by the colours of the countryside, we have incorporated fresh green for the open hills, red for centuries of royal connections (Prince Charles, and several other members of the Royal family, live in the area), blue for the rivers, dark green for the ancient forest, honey gold for the mellow limestone of the villages, and ochre for the Cotswold sheep (long known as the "Cotswold Lion"), which brought prosperity to the area. These subtle shades are woven into a check, evocative of the West of England broadcloths, famous since the 18th century.
