The houndstooth pattern dates back to the late 1800′s where it originated in Scotland. Traditionally, the print came in woven wool cloth and was only in black and white colors.

With fall approaching in this beautiful month of September, BrandWave wanted to talk about the different shades of Sapphire. Not only is it the birthstone for the month, but also there is so much more to this beautiful stone and color. The sapphire stone signifies wisdom and royalty, and is thought to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. Beyond that, the sapphire is symbolic for strength, good judgment, and kindness. Furthermore, it comes in many beautiful shades of blue, making it a wonderful transitional color from summer into fall.
With summer coming to an end, and fall quickly approaching, BrandWave thinks that Tweed is a perfect transitional fabric. Whether it be clothes or accessories, Tweed is great for everyone! Some refer to tweed as “The original performance fabric” because of its material and durability.
