GiliNix - More Than Just Tweed
A thoroughly British Brand
It all started with two mothers, three girls, plenty of puppies, a few horses and a big fat roll of tweed.
Wanting to create clothing to suit our lifestyle we set about re-designing the most worn and the most important piece in our wardrobe, the gilet.
The shape was critical, a gilet to fit and flatter the female figure, on thin days and fat days! Suitable for the school run, chic enough for lunch, smart enough for parents evening yet tough enough to withstand long walks in the field or mucking out the ponies.
The choice of fabric simple, it had to be tweed!
The ladies Gilet created, which did and still does all the things we wanted, shows off the good bits, hides the cheeky bits and gives great shape, but not bulk. With the same tweed we designed a classic country coat for the girls, smart enough for church yet tough enough for the great outdoors, a waterproof membrane within the coat ensured our little ones were warm and dry, whatever the weather.
The collection has expanded to include our signature tweed gilets, a collection of 'made to order' jackets, skirts and coats in tweed cashmere and linen along with exclusively knitted cashmere knitwear. We are proud to support British manufacturing and local designers who create the most wonderful leather and tweed accessories.
