The history of woollen cloth-
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.
