The Scotland Women’s National Team will travel to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in style this summer, thanks to Walker Slater, reports scottishfa.co.uk.
The Tweed specialists will supply the squad with Harris Tweed Hebrides jackets to wear as they fly out to France in June, ensuring the players and coaching staff look the part ahead of the biggest test of their careers so far.
Walker Slater will now supply the players with the Iona jacket, a traditional style with the Harris Tweed Hebrides combining the dark blue of the Scotland jersey with the sky blue from the Saltire to give a subtle, modern tweed.
The deep navy backdrop is complimented with sky blue broken stripes, while cuff button detail appears in the form of bright red stitching.
Scottish FA Commercial Director Chris Rawlings: “Having companies with such a strong Scottish heritage as Walker Slater and Harris Tweed Hebrides supporting the Scotland Women’s National Team as they get ready for the World Cup is a massive compliment.
“We have been working with Walker Slater as an official licensee for some years now and we were delighted when they offered to tailor jackets for the squad for their onward journey to France.
“The success of the team has been amazing and to see them depart fully kitted out in the official Scotland National Team Harris Tweed will be a proud moment for them.”
