I was curious about the Savile Row address on the fabric label, so I took a look at Hardy Minnis' website.
It appears that J&J Minnis set up a fabric showroom at no. 16 Savile Row in 1874, and quickly became one of the main suppliers to their neighbouring tailoring houses. In 1969 they merged with John G Hardy, famous for popularising Harris Tweed and supplying some of Edward VIII's most distinctive cloths. JG Hardy's Royal Warrant was carried over to the merged company, whose mills are these days located in Huddersfield.
I wonder whether the Savile Row location is still active. Does anyone know?
You use Coccinella? How do you like their work?
