Linton Tweeds were founded in 1912 in Carlilse, between Scottish Borders and the Lake District. Initially two salesmen were employed to travel by pony and trap buying wool and selling woolen suit lengths. In the 1920's William Linton was introduced to a dynamic young lady by the name of Coco Chanel by William Linton's great friend, Captain Edward Molyneux, a British born Parisian couturier. The association between Linton & Chanel flourished over the years resulting in the house of Chanel being Linton's biggest and most prestigious customer, producing many of the iconic tweeds used in Chanel's collections.
