Vintage Wool Trapper Jacket, fabric replicated by S Dawes Weaving Ltd

This dyed 100% wool Trapper fabric is an exact replica of the original 1930s Canadian hunting Trapper jacket. We were asked by  Nigel Cabourn who is a British fashion designer famous for his outerwear and passion for vintage clothing, to replicate this amazing old fabric.  The client was a large high end sportswear retailer in America.  The original jacket was a museum piece and part of Nigel Cabourn’s own large collection. We analysed the fabric for wool yarn count, colour and weight, the design was then photographed and scanned onto our CAD design system, samples were then woven at Greenhill Mill and sent to America for approval. This successful project is just one of several that the team at Dawes have worked on for Nigel Cabourn.
