Savoir collaborate with British Tailor and Weave Designer Dashing Tweeds
Savoir have collaborated with British tailor and weave designer Dashing Tweeds to demonstrate the fine art of tailored sleep. The new design, TWEED, combines British craft with an innovative approach to the traditional material to bring modern tailoring to a classic piece of furniture.
Dashing Tweeds pioneer British modern tweed, combining heritage textile skills with contemporary developments in fabric weaves. Their playful designs have resulted in a fresh approach to tweed, with their modernised definitive British fabrics used by London’s Savile Row tailors. Combined with Savoir’s century of crafting bespoke beds, TWEED is a celebration of innovation with time-honoured weaving and upholstery techniques at the centre of the new creation.
From inception, Savoir have been committed to tailored sleep, crafting custom comfort and designs to create the perfect night’s sleep. With Dashing Tweeds beautiful fabrics, Savoir has found a seamless partner to uniquely tailor both made-to-measure comfort and style to exacting measures.
TWEED features the Dashing Tweeds ‘Raver’ weave, the epitome of modern textiles. The ‘Raver’ collection fuses traditional tweed sports wear with 21st century technology to create a new urban design for dashing around town, day or night. The fine merino wool incorporates a reflective yarn, with the microscopic beads in the yarn reflecting any beam of light from its surface.
Savoir only use the finest natural materials as they regulate body temperature all year round, helping to achieve a restful night’s sleep. With tweed being the original sportswear fabric and originally a wool weave, the ‘Raver’ design was a natural upholstery choice for a Savoir.
Wool is famed for its comfort, breathability and ease of tailoring and these qualities are now enhanced with an almost magical reflective quality, making it the perfect fabric for a comfortable but stylish sleep.
Savoir Managing Director, Alistair Hughes, commented, “Both Savoir and Dashing Tweeds are founded on the principals of matching innovation, with the highest quality materials and traditional craftsmanship. Craft is pivotal to Savoir, a collaboration with such a distinctly British brand felt like a natural partnership. We are experts in making the most comfortable and extraordinary beds imaginable and central to this is personalisation, so working with a master tailor, was an exciting journey as we developed the tailored sleep.”
Guy Hills, Co-Founder of Dashing Tweed continues, “Dashing Tweeds is delighted to be working with Savoir beds on a collaborative project. We value craftsmanship and heritage highly and we are also keen to work with businesses interested in innovation and progress. Our reflective Raver tweeds combine both traditional and modern yarns making them an ideal choice for this exciting partnership.”
Pairing two British brands, with a shared ethos of using quality natural materials and combining time-honoured techniques with originality and invention, this is a homage to British craftmanship.
TWEED will be available from September 2020.
Savoir No. 4 bed set is priced from £15,500.
