Reviving the Non-Crease Weave

Marwood's Technical Ties

Concrete Pavement
Concrete Rust

Marwood's first collection has tried to cover a variety of needs and occasions by offering a range of fabrications including traditional Silk, Wool and English lace. Whilst trawling the archives of the silk mill in Suffolk, we came across the Non-Crease Weave (a silk/wool blend) and found it to be modern and relevant for today. Here is a bit of background info...

The non-crease weave was invented in the 1930s and was designed to produce a general use silk cloth that gave a nice textured surface (almost knitted), that would not visibly crease, therefore being a cloth that wore well.

It was picked up in the 1970's by neckwear designers and was at its height of popularity then as it fitted in with the look at the time.
