My take on a traditional maud.
A few hundred years ago a maud would be worn by shepherd's from the borders and lowlands of Scotland and made with rough woollen cloth or tweed.
They would be worn tightly to the body against the worse of the weather but could be used as a kind of sling bag to carry orphaned or sick lambs and still keep their hands free to carry their stick or crook.
I now make them with traditional single width Harris Tweed with a single seam at the shoulder which helps it to stay put but I also add a brooch made with matching and coordinating fabrics for you to fasten it securely. They are simple and elegant and look as good over a dress to keep away the evening chill as they do over a pair of jeans and jumper.
I can source most colours of tweed locally from independent weavers across Harris.
