Tweeds are an icon of traditional Scottish and Irish clothing. It is good for informal outerwear, because the material is moisture-resistant and long-lasting. Tweeds are made to withstand harsh climates. They are worn for outdoor activities such as shooting and hunting. In Ireland, most tweed making is done in County Donegal.
