Consideration Bentley purchasers: Tweed is now on the menu. The woolen fabric can now be specced in any of its styles (Bentayga, Traveling Spur or Continental GT) as inside doorway trim as a alternative for whichever wooden, metals or stone(!) you would have there commonly. It is so delightfully British in the very best feasible way.
You can decide concerning 4 diverse tweed styles. Here’s how Bentley describes them: “Cheltenham, with its countryside greens, provides a more classic option for buyers whilst Glen Plaid–Tolsta Seaside, named right after the shores of the rugged Outer Hebrides, tends to make a self-confident assertion with its bold test sample. Offering a more subtle, contemporary alternative, the Charcoal and Sand Herringbone tweeds enhance darkish and gentle interiors respectively on the two-doorway and 4-door Grand Tourers.”
The Glen Plaid-Tolsta Seashore is our beloved with Cheltenham coming in at a near 2nd. Both of those Herringbone trims are however awesome, but the checked sample genuinely pops. It feels proper at dwelling in this kind of an sophisticated and lavish interior.
Bentley states it’s sourcing the tweed from a Scottish distributor named Lovat Mill. It’s made applying sustainable processes, furthering Bentley’s ambitions of minimizing its carbon footprint. If you want tweed in your new Bentley, you are going to have to have to buy it by means of Mulliner, Bentley’s bespoke commissioning division. It’ll be expensive, but what else did you count on?
This isn’t the to start with time we’ve found tweed showcased in Bentley goods just before. The gorgeous Mulliner Bacalar made use of tweed thoroughly during its interior, going so far as to use it on the instrument panel, seats and bespoke baggage established. You simply cannot get that significantly tweed in the rest of Bentley’s range, but it’s a charming touch nonetheless.
