Bicycle Tweed

So last week was the opening of Dashing Tweeds’ new Mayfair shop.

We went to see the new shop design and the lovely tweeds.

The week before I had finished off a bicycle seat for a friend’s project.

It is covered with the Red Sergeant Tweed from Dashing Tweeds.

Tweed is obviously not the best material to cover a bike seat in as it will wear pretty quickly, but this is for an exhibition bike rather than one to be used a lot.

And there’s also the added bonus of Dashing Tweeds using LUMATWILL which is a reflective fibre (helping you get seen at night without having to wear an ugly yellow vest!)

Thanks to the lovely Hoxton Street Shoe Repairers as well who supplied me with all the glue.
