Tartan

Forever representative of Celtic culture, tartan is known for its coloured, checked wool pattern. The Scottish kilt is its emblematic costume, nearly always created using patterned tartan material which, just like a coat of arms, is characteristic of each family. In the 1970s, the punk movement, voluntarily placing itself on the margins of society, appropriated tartan and revisited its usage to criticise the ruling class.

“Authentic and terribly suffused with heritage”

Cotton flannel

The word “flannel” is said to stem from the Welsh term for “wool”. Although flannel was originally entirely made of wool, it is now made up of cotton. Soft to the touch, the fibres are napped, scratched, and then raised to give the fabric that soft feel. Often used for winter coats, shirts and hats, flannel renders garments more waterproof. 

Corozo

A spanish word to describe vegetable ivory, corozo (or tagua) is the fleshy interior of the ivory palm fruit - called endosperm - originally from the Amazonian forest. It can be sculpted, changed and polished as easily as ivory. Corozo was first discovered in 1798 by Spanish explorers Hipólito Ruiz López and José Antonio Pavón who set out to explore the Peruvian jungle of the upper Amazon. They discovered that the first people to use the palm fruit to create jewellery and objects were the Quechua Indians. Fishermen also worked with corozo, creating small receptacles and snuff boxes. In 1865, a steamer left Esmeraldas in Ecuador for Hamburg with cargos of tagua on board. The Germans then discovered the vegetable ivory and began making buttons and small ornaments such as dice, thimbles, needle sheaths, jewellery and drawer knobs.
