Live for Tweed is a family run business with a goal to save tweed garments of all types from being discarded in landfills. We oppose the concept of fast fashion, believing that well-crafted garments should stand the test of time, which is why we do our part to extend the life of these articles of clothing by bringing them back to life.
Live for Tweed stocks a range of tweed jackets, country outdoor wax and tweed coats, quilted jackets, waistcoats, gilets, country hats, ladies’ jackets, and a mix of vintage clothing.
Many gardeners rely on durable, functional clothing that can withstand the demands of outdoor work. By shopping pre-loved with Live for Tweed, gardeners can reduce their impact on the environment by giving new life to garments that might have otherwise gone to waste.
De Beers Garden Centre based in Kidderminster is leading the way in sustainability by becoming one of the first garden centres in the UK to support pre-loved fashion by introducing Live for Tweed into their business.
This move marks a crucial step forward in their commitment to reducing waste and promoting sustainable practices in the industry. With pre-loved clothing, De Beers Garden Centre is demonstrating that even the most traditional of businesses can embrace sustainable practices.
