The Perfect Pairing

Our client, Tetrad has had a long standing relationship with Harris Tweed and we explore that in this post!

The famous Harris Tweed cloth has been woven from pure virgin wool in the Outer Hebrides for many generations with the iconic Orb and Maltese Cross trademark being introduced in 1910. Every roll of fabric can be traced by its unique provenance number back to the home-based weavers. The fabric they create together is as interwoven with their shared skills and stories as it is with those of their ancestors. For more than 100 years the skills used to create Harris Tweed have been passed down the generations.

Its enduring appeal, being warm in winter and cool in summer, is used today at the cutting edge of both fashion and design, favoured by Royals and designers alike. Whether light or heavy, Harris Tweed also repels water and resists wear and tear with ease. It was all these qualities and ethos that made Harris Tweed the perfect fabric to be paired with another classically British brand – Tetrad.

Tetrad, based in the heart of Lancashire has been designing and making the finest quality handcrafted sofas and chairs for almost 50 years. Collaborating with this luxury cloth and designing The Classic Harris Tweed Collection provides a stunning showcase of designs combining the expertise of both brands British heritage craftsmanship.

Tetrad has developed a beautiful portfolio of products over the last five decades, which includes sofas, chairs, beds, and footstools each offering an endless choice of fabric, hide and size options. The Harris Tweed collection is among Tetrads most distinguished work, with the distinct depth of colour and texture exclusive to this unique fabric and reminiscent of Scotland’s ancestry, each piece exudes quality and style. Combining Tetrads signature expert craftsmanship with the hard wearing and prestigious Harris Tweed exudes quality and style whilst also typifying just what makes Britain great – that wonderful sense of heritage, quality and tradition.

Chadder & Co Collaborate with Born Free Foundation

Head designer and CEO of the company, Martin Chadder, was conscious of not making the mistake so many others do when creating a piece of this nature, he was determined for it to ‘look like a real animal’ rather than a gargoyle gone wrong! We think you’ll agree that Mr. Chadder succeeded in his mission! Used to fill either a bath or basin the Lion Head faucet, available in eight different finishes, oozes luxury and offers a striking alternative to a standard bathroom fixture.

What is particularly special about this product however, is its connection with the international conservation and animal rights organization, The Born Free Foundation. Founded in 1984 by the actors Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna its objective is in theory very simple: to stop suffering and protect species in the wild. For every Lions head filler sold by Chadder & Co., it donates £40 to this amazing association.

This unique collaboration first arose while Martin was living in Kenya, close to a sanctuary where much of Born Free’s lion conservation work is conducted. Fortuitously, Martin met Tara Stimson, who joined Born Free in 2012 and is part of a team which manages the charity’s corporate partnerships. From there, Martin was inspired to create the Lions Head filler & the collaboration came to fruition!

The Born Free Foundation has become a global force for the protection of our wildlife and its dedicated team works tirelessly to provide a voice for vulnerable animals and prevent their suffering. The foundation has made a huge impact, but there is always more work to be done so the continuous support of its dedicated team and loyal contributors such as Chadder & Co. will always remain crucial to its progression towards an ever more compassionate planet.
