Getting ready for… The CLA Game Fair

Getting ready for… The CLA Game FairThe text on the sign may say that Maude & Fox is ‘proudly made in Dorset’ but that doesn’t mean we don’t get out and about!

We’ve been busy in our Dorset studio preparing for the upcoming CLA Game Fair, which takes place at Blenheim Palace (Woodstock, Oxfordshire), from the 18th to the 20th July.

Not only will we be running our stand of contemporary tweed clothing (Stand No. D0317) but the Maude & Fox team will also be providing tweed clothing for the daily CLA Fashion Show.

Making their event debut will be our tweed waistcoat, Pom Pom tea cosy, tweed messenger bag, the Nosy Tweed Parka, the Fly Ladies tweed hooded jacket and the Patriot fleece scarf.

Team member Tanya comments, “The CLA Game Fair is one of the biggest on our social calendar. We had a fabulous time at last year’s event. It’s just as well it runs for three days as there’s so much to see and do!

I loved introducing people to the Cherilyn, the Brace Shooting Jacket and the Foxy Sports Gilet last year. along with the prototype for the Messenger Bag! I’m sure we’ll get the same positive response to the latest items from our tweed collection. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing reactions to our new Pom Pom tea cosy. No-one likes a cold cuppa and with its red pom pom, this tea cosy certainly It puts the ‘fun’ into function!”

Come and see us at The CLA Game Fair STAND No. D0317

Patriotic tweed messenger bag

tweed bag

We recently created this Union Jack tweed messenger bag for Rachel, who got in touch with us after following our tweed tweets on Twitter.

Our tweed messenger bags are available in a variety of tweeds. Interlined with a waterproof lining, these bags are an extremely useful and stylish throw everything in bag. And as it’s a messenger bag size, it’ll easily fit an A4 pad too.

Our standard tweed messenger bag starts at £85. You can see more details here or if you have a unique idea for your own tweed bag like the one pictured, why not get in touch and order something bespoke from our Dorset studio?

Seeing Rachels’ tweed bag flying the flag has certainly got us feeling very patriotic and looking forward to some great upcoming British country fairs.

Next month will see the Maude & Fox tweed team and a collection of our contemporary tweed clothing at the CLA Gamefair (Blenhiem Palace, Oxfordshire 18-20 July).

We will also be exhibiting our terrific tweed at The Chatsworth Country Fair (Chatsworth House, Norfolk 29-31 August) and at The Country Life Fair (Fulham Palace, London 27-28 September).

Keep an eye on our blog for more details about each of these terrific events.

Maude & Fox Patriot Cap

Tweed with a twist? How about the patriot cap, made from a range of colourful tweeds. We’re getting an ever increasing following for the patriot cap, from the aristocracy to rugby fans, the latest sighting was at the Scotland game last weekend.

You will be pleased to hear that the Union Jack cap that you sent to my husband’s office, arrived in plenty of time and we took it up to Edinburgh for our son`s birthday.  It was admired by all, and worn straight away to the Scotland/south Africa rugby match and as far as I can gather worn pretty well ever since.

Designed in Dorset

Maude & Fox had a stand at Designed in Dorset, deep in the heart of the countryside near Sherborne and what a success.

We had a few prototype tweed pieces on show, plus the Maude ladies jacket in a rich moleskin was a winner along with the old favourites of gilets, hoodies and the ever popular Aspen.

Accessories were a winner for Christmas, shooting garters, welly warmers, mittens and caps.

Watch out for more info on the upcoming shooting bunnies….!

Keeping it tweed in Dorset.

What’s new

We had a very productive summer coming up with all sorts of new ideas along the lines of tweed with a twist – we have now got a number of great luxurious ladies fur trimmed hoodies. The newly reshaped Aspen works perfectly as a glamorous apres ski top, to slip on for drinks at the country pub or as a chic number to stroll down the Kings Road. The Aspen comes in 3 beautiful colour combinations, grey with a creamy white fur collar, dark blue with a silver fox fur ( grey and white) or chocolatey brown perfect with the silver fox fur or faux fur. All our fur is from recycled sources and any of the Aspen hoodies can be made with a faux fur trim as an option.
