The Prince of Wales is a carded woolen fabric into a twill weave, with its characteristic design of stripes and checks, in the usual black and white colors. The origin of its particular design is Tartan, these typical fabrics come from the Scottish islands of Highland which still today characterize the membership to a clan or to a particular family, to commemorate special events or indicate districts or institutions. In the ’20s it was adopted and launched by the Prince of Wales, from whom has had the name. This fabric is generally used to manufacture suits for men and suits and skirts for women.
In the laboratory we have studied the original pattern reproducing it and later reviewed and modified. So now we have mixed linen summer scarves and winter scarves made of cashmere, merino and kid mohair.
