Fox Charcoal Covert Cushions
These beautiful cushions, made from the classic covert cloth was created by Fox Brothers & co. in the late 1800's. The term covert derived from the french 'couvert' whose definition is of a shelter or hiding place for game. and referred to the unique colour, woven from a myriad of fibres, tightly spun in a steep twill to create a soft warm hue, quite unlike anything else. Such was the importance of this innovation the V&A museum now credit Cordings as the originator of this special coat and have one in their permanent collection.This tightly woven steep twill originally designed to with stand the harshness of riding. This adaptation is in a beautiful marl charcoal grey. Today, this cloth lends itself to be a elegant and hard wearing cloth.
