The distinctive TWG patchworks are a modern take on tradition. Welsh flannel has a long and interesting history. It dates back to the time when farmers in rural Wales were spinners and weavers too. They used the wool from their flock of sheep to produce cloth that was made into clothing, blankets, shawls and patchwork quilts for the family and local community. Later it was used for workwear in Wales, hence the stripes and checks for shirts. It was, and still is, the material used in the traditional Welsh National Costume.
