Tell us about your business
The Tweedmill brand, established in 1971, is renowned for its quality, innovation, and reliability. Situated in the historical town of Flint, our designs are influenced by the surrounding nature reserves & local woodlands. Offering a range of exquisite pure new wool throws, beautiful home textiles, a wonderful range of picnic rugs and a stylish selection of accessories for ladies, gents & pets.
What can you tell us about your entered products?
Our Celtic weave rugs are manufactured by recycling and reusing wool; this allows us to minimise the amount of waste we produce. Due to the high quality and durability of the wool fibre, woollen textiles are inherently suitable for re-use and recycling. As the largest product in our recycled range, the intricate design makes the perfect statement piece for any interior. They are woven in an assortment of colours, making each one unique. They coincide with our seasonal primary collections, ensuring the product is still on-trend.
Why did you choose to enter Gift of the Year 2021 and has the competition helped boost your brand in the past?
We entered Gift of the Year as we wanted to showcase & highlight our expanding recycled range of rugs & products. Since its release, the Celtic has increased in sales & popularity. Last year we were lucky enough to be shortlisted in two categories, which gave us some great brand exposure. All fingers crossed that we are as successful this year!
