The inspiration for the tweed design is from the The Bowder Stone. The Bowder Stone is a large andesite lava boulder, that fell 200 metres from the Bowder Crag on Kings How between 13,500 and 10,000 years ago. It is a popular tourist site and there has been a staircase allowing visitors to climb to the top since at least 1890.

The wool used is from mother and daughter farmers Sue Tyson and Rachel Willan who farm in Borrowdale at Dancing Gate Farm.
