The Country Life Fair: Behind the scenes

The Country Life Fair: Behind the scenes

The Maude & Fox team had a fantastic time at last weekend’s Country Life Fair.

We loved people’s reactions when first setting sights on our contemporary tweed clothing collection.

Setting up Fulham Palace did prove a little challenging so we’re extremely grateful for the wonderful help and support the Country Life Fair porters gave us. We wouldn’t have managed without them!

A full report from the weekend with plenty of images will be posted shortly on the Country Life Fair website.

Here’s a photo of Mark flying the flag at the recent Royal County of Berkshire Show.

As you can see Marks is the proud owner of a rather fabulous moustache too, officially it’s the 3rd best handlebar moustache in Britain.

If you’re feeling as patriotic then check out our Patriot Cap. It’s made in our Dorset studio from 100% British tweed and sports an eye-catching Union Jack in red appliqué tweed and is fully lined.

Bringing the countryside to town

The Country Life Fair
Another date for your diaries! The Country Life Fair takes place in the capital during the last weekend in September.

The venue for this event is none other than Fulham Palace, the historic home of the Bishops of London. Once enclosed by the longest moat in England, Fulham Palace’s gardens are protected as an important historic landscape. (Keep an eye out for Bishop Compton looking across the lawns from the top of the ‘Bishop’s Tree).

Tweed with a twist, Maude & Fox is all about making urban country chic come to life through combining traditional materials, mostly tweed, and great design to make contemporary clothes that can be worn by lad or laird alike.

We look forward to exhibiting our latest collection of contemporary tweed clothing, including the Fly Ladies tweed hooded jacket, the Nosy Tweed Parka and the Patriot fleece scarf.

In addition to our tweed clothing, The Country Life Fair will feature exhibitors from all over the United Kingdom. You’ll have the chance to sample, taste, try and buy everything from the latest equipment, cars, gadgets, food and wine as well as investigate holidays, spas and property.

Hot ‘fair’ balloons

Hot 'fair' balloons

The 2014 Chatsworth Country Fair took place over the recent August Bank Holiday Weekend. This show is a favourite of ours with crowds of up to 100,00 heading to stunning grounds of stunning Chatsworth House.

There was also plenty of action up in the air this year with a tribute to the airmen of World War 2 by the Royal Air Force in their Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Another sight to behold at the fair were the many wonderful hot air balloons that took to the skies. We managed to get a picture of one directly above our tweed show stand.

In fact, one of the balloonists from the day ended up buying one of our tweed Patriot caps so is now proudly flying the flag, as well as a hot air balloon.

View our entire range of tweed caps and country clothing accessories.
